How do I create an "array" of variables (e.g. Variable1, Variable2, Variable3 where the number of variables and their values is dynamic)?

I wanted to know how I could create a collection of MemoryStream objects where the number of individual MemoryStreams that need to exist is not known ahead of time.

If you are using .Net 2.0, how bout using a generic list instead?  List<System.IO.MemoryStream> x = new List<System.IO.MemoryStream>;

x.Add(New System.IO.MemoryStream());
