dynamically change variable name and assign a value

asp.net Ottawa, Canada

    Hello - bit a beginner here

    Let's say I have 20 asp labels on a page (names label1 to label20) and I want to set their values at run time.  Is it possible to go through a list of all the labels without explicitly writing each one?   Maybe a loop that goes through label & i (where i is a value from 1 to 20) and then within the loop set the values for label & i = "text value".    

    I used to code in VB6 a long time ago and I remember their being something about a "for each object in ObjectType" type of loop.

    Any help would be appreciated!
