Hi,
How can I make this working? now i got the error "Dot indexing is not supported for variables of this type."
I want to use that name and open the table of the name i created.
for p = 1:7
Name = strcat('ScanRec',num2str(p))
vins1 = unique(Name.vin);
end

I guess you have tables called ScanRec1, ScanRec2, ...? If so, you can do almost what you want by making each table a field within a structure S, something like this:
S.ScanRec1 = table(vin,whatever);
S.ScanRec2 = table(vin,whatever);
% and so on
Then your for loop would be something like this:
for p = 1:7
Name = strcat('ScanRec',num2str(p))
vins1 = unique(S.(Name).vin);
end
