]I need to create an a variable set to an object dynamically using the code below.  There can be anywhere from 0 to many so I need to set lr with a numeric value for example lr1, lr2 etc... I am realizing what I have below cannot be done with a simple concatination.  

 [embed=snippet 8250291
         foreach (int i in labreports)
            {
                MHLServices.FaxQueueRequestILabReport "lr" + i.ToString() = new MHLServices.FaxQueueRequestILabReport();
                lr + i.lr_uid = labreports.items[i];
                fax.FaxQueueRequestILabReports.Add(lr + i);
            }

You don't.   Create a List and refer to it by index.

Why not just add it directly:




foreach (int i in labreports)
{
   fax.FaxQueueRequestILabReports.Add(labreports.items[ i ]);
}

Lists are dynamic.  You create as many as you need.

The variable name will be the key.
