Description

Object that stores data key, item pairs.

Syntax

Scripting.Dictionary

Remarks

A Dictionary object is the equivalent of a PERL associative array. Items, which can be any form of data, are stored in the array. Each item is associated with a unique key. The key is used to retrieve an individual item and is usually a integer or a string, but can be anything except an array.

The following code illustrates how to create a Dictionary object:

Dim d                   'Create a variable
Set d = CreateObject(Scripting.Dictionary)
d.Add "a", "Athens"     'Add some keys and items
d.Add "b", "Belgrade"
d.Add "c", "Cairo"
...
