Question: Converting a string into a maple variable name


Another newbie question...

I have an excel file with lots of named ranges. I can use the ExcelTools WorkbookData command to get a list of all the available named ranges, and then I can assign the contents of each named range to a Maple variable with the Import command.

I'm thinking that there must be an elegant way to create a Maple variable for each string in the list of named ranges and assign it to the contents. Something like looping through each named range in the list, creating a variable of that name, and then assigning the contents of that named range. I hope I'm clear without repeating myself too much.

Am I explaining my need?

Thanks in advance. This looks like a good forum, and I hope to be able to contribute someday.
