variation on (?) call subroutine by reference

I know that if $subname contains the name of the subroutine I want to call,
I can call that subroutine via
&$subname;

However, my subroutine names are in an array, so if I want to call
$subname[3] I've tried
&$subname[3];

But, that doesn't work, and I'm not having much luck finding such an
example. If I'm doing something truly numbskulled, I do apologize!

I do realize I could go this route:
$this_sub = $subname[3];
&$this_sub;

That just seems so clunky and unnecessary, no?

TIA,
Alison

Hi, I have a bit of code which is confusing me to no end. Here are the basics: 1) The class module is being used in the module of a form. 2) There is an instance of the object declared at the form level, and instantiated in the Load event of the form. This instance holds the "current" values (based on data in a table), and it's called...
