Ambiguous reference to a field in a table

Is there a way to reference a field in a table without using the given name of the field?

For example, I have a field A in table X, can I reference the field A using some other identifier that is not tied to the actual "name" of the field?

Thanks,

Siarhei K.

I'm assuming you're trying to keep things dynamic and hence why you don't want to reference by name?  Check out "Table Functions" in the QV help file.  Namely FieldName comes to mind which returns the name based on it's ordinal position in the table; you could possibly use this in a variable definition.
