Would it be possible to store a part of the name of a control into a variable and do like:

myVar = "FirstName"

txt & "myVar".text = "blablabla"


instead of doing
txtFirstname = "blablabla"

?!?

NO.

You can use CallByName to call a method of an object by passing the string representation of the method. But, to
represent a object use the string representation is not possible (or at least not the normal way)
