Cycle trough handles on GUI

Dear all, this is probably a stupid question and it was probably asked a thousand times before… Anyway… I have a GUI with a lot of tables. Every table's content is held by a handle called handle.table1, handle.table2 and so forth.
I would like to be able to change the content of the tables automatically with a for cycle.
So far I'm doing this: set(handle.table1, 'PropertyName', PropertyValue) set(handle.table3, 'PropertyName', PropertyValue) set(handle.table2, 'PropertyName', PropertyValue)
And I would like to do this:
for N=1:20
set(handle.tableN, 'PropertyName', PropertyValue)
But… how can I do it? I would like not to change the structure of the handle as that would be a messy solution since I have 4000 lines of code and would require a big rework of the whole GUI…
Thanks a lot!

That's great, thanks! I guess I'll ty and use eval in order to do that… That's something I've already done in the past but I wasn't sure if I could do that with handles as well…

I'm not setting the same thing for all of them. The first option you proposed (dynamic field) seems great! I'll test that!
Thanks for your help!
