Item Property (ADO)

Indicates a specific member of a collection, by name or ordinal number.


Set object = collection.Item ( Index )  

Return Value

Returns an object reference.


A Variant expression that evaluates either to the name or to the ordinal number of an object in a collection.


Use the Item property to return a specific object in a collection. If Item cannot find an object in the collection corresponding to the Index argument, an error occurs. Also, some collections don't support named objects; for these collections, you must use ordinal number references.

The Item property is the default property for all collections; therefore, the following syntax forms are interchangeable:

collection.Item (Index)  
collection (Index)
