There are some Structures on Workspace. I know the names of these structures. But these names are string. how could I get access inside that Structure from a .m file? For example name of the first structure is name='AB'. if I write "name" in a .m file, it gives us 'AB' !!! But i need to access that structure.
In other word, is there any command for structure like "eval" command for matrix?

A structure is a matrix.
We recommend that you reconsider what you are doing. You should be able to avoid eval. Referring to entire variables by name usually leads to security problems, program instability, unreadable programs, inefficiencies, and bugs that are quite difficult to find.
