I have product numbers set as a primary key. I also want to use these product numbers to make a variable name. I already have a method of pulling

my product numbers appear in the following format: 1234-5678

My question is this. How can I make a variable with a hyphen in it's name? or will it always think str1234-5678 is subtract 5678 from str1234?

My goal is the following:

str1234-0001 = "Product A"
str1234-0002 = "Product B"
str1234-0003 = "Product C"

you CANNOT use hyphens in variables, they would be considered as substractions.
you migth use underscore (_) instead.
