Well, I read, but did not understand exactly what you are trying to do, Sorry, but anyway I hope this can help you or give you some idea.

Clear 
lcVar1 = "String 1"
ldVar2 = Date(2009,05,20)
lnVar3 = 100

oColl = CreateObject("Collection")

oColl.Add("lcVar1",Transform(lcVar1))
oColl.Add("ldVar2",Transform(ldVar2))
oColl.Add("lnVar3",Transform(lnVar3))

? oColl("String 1") 		&& Gives lcVar1
? oColl(Dtoc(Date(2009,05,20))) && Gives ldVar2
? oColl("100")		        && Gives lnVar3
