Autogenerate field names

Hello,

Is it possible to generate field names within the Qlikview script?

Currently, I have 2 fields: Store and Detail.

What I would like to do is generate more detail fields based on if a store has multiple "Detail" rows

For example, I'd like a generate something like this:

StoreDetailDetail2Detail3Detail4
StoreADetail1Detail2Detail3Detail4
StoreADetail2---
StoreADetail3---
StoreADetail4---
StoreBDetail1---
StoreCDetail1---
StoreCDetail1Detail2--
StoreCDetail2---

Is this possible?

Thank you in advance
