in thread variable in variables

how do I do the worksheets writes outside of a for loop?
Old:
$NAME = "BOB"; $worksheet_$NAME->write('A2', "$NAME is here");
New:
$NAME = "BOB"; $worksheets{$NAME}->write('A2', "$NAME is here");

BTW, as for why symbolic references should be avoided, see the classic three part series by MJD: part 1 and part 2 and part 3.
