Dynamically adding controls to a Collection

I need to dynamically (at run time) create a large amount of textboxes.  I want to create a loop which adds the controls (textboxes in this case) to a collection.  How can I do this?  I know I can loop through and create differest control names, text, etc., but I can't figure out how to use a loop to generate different actual controls.  As an example:

I tried this:

for i = 1 to txtBoxAmt
txtBoxCollection.add(textbox1) . . . . I can't modify "textbox1" using the count varible "i".  Any ideas?
textbox1.name = "name" & i"
textbox1.text = "text" & i"
Next

Please help.  THANKS!
