You can pass a label number as a number, and a label name as a string. Store in, say, register 00, then call them with XEQ IND 00. The only limitations are: can't call local alpha labels this way (A-J and a-e), nor global labels with names more than 6 characters long.

EDIT: I am assuming you're talking about the HP-41 or 42S here, those obviously being the only RPN calculators you should be using for serious programming. Big Grin Although some (not all) other RPN models also support indirect calls, like the 19C/29C or 67/97.
