Use a vector as tensor argument?

Good morning,

I want to assign a certain value to an element of a tensor. This element is identified by an array obtained from some evaluations, so we fix it. Here i present an oversimplified core part of my code:

DimensionA = 3;
v = {1, 2, 3};
Array[TensorA, Table[10, DimensionA], 0];  
TensorA @@ v = 12;

at this point i receive an error

Set::write: Tag Apply in TensorA@@{1,2,3} is Protected.

Obviously if i do TensorA[1, 2, 3] = 12;it is all ok but my aim is to give in input a vector with an arbitrary number of indices. Let me know how should I give in input the vector to the tensor without receiving this error.

Please admins don't remove this question.

Do you mean this?

In[1]:= DimensionA = 3;
v = {1, 2, 3};
Array[TensorA, Table[10, {DimensionA}], 0];
TensorA[Sequence @@ v] = 12

Out[4]= 12

In[5]:= TensorA[1, 2, 3]

Out[5]= 12

Yes exactly, i didn't know about the expression [Sequence @@ ]. Thank you for the answer.
