An example...
    Dim matches() As Control
    For i As Integer = 1 To 12
        matches = Me.Controls.Find("Label" & i, True)
        If matches.Length > 0 AndAlso TypeOf matches(0) Is Label Then
            DirectCast(matches(0), Label).Text = Label14.Text
        End If
    Next

Open in new window

Assuming that you know that there is a Label for each value of i, and that Page is a form:

     Page.Controls("Label" & i.ToString).Text = Label14.Text

If the Label is in the same form as the code then:

     Me.Controls("Label" & i.ToString).Text = Label14.Text
