I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Macro? Under most circumstances you wouldn't do that, cause it's basically a violation of good and clean OOP design principles.

But when there is a good reason: You would use reflection to find the property named 'NAME' and assign the value (PropertyInfo.SetValue Method).

btw, while a name is often a string, an adress is a reference type to it's own class.
