I'm not completely sure I understand the question, but you
might try something like this...

exec 'P%s=[%s,%s,%s]' %(1,'x','y','z')

This will create and execute a python statement that looks like


However, I do believe that you best bet would be to use a

P = {}
P[1] = [x,y,z]
P[2] = [x,y,z]
P[3] = [x,y,z]

Stand Fast,
