It occurred to me that in Access 2000 you can essentially modify parts of a program via code, such as changing the querydef object on a query to alter its actions. Is there a way in VB.NET 1.1 that you can create a routine that would act on a variable name ?

Something like this:

var = "x_AR_GR1_PS07.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Yellow"

execute ? var

Instead of
var = "x_AR_GR1_PS07.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Yellow"
execute ? var

you could use something like
var = System.Drawing.Color.Yellow
x_AR_GR1_PS07.BackColor = var

any reason you can't use this?
