object.Item(key) [= newitem]
The Item property has the following parts:
|object||Required. Always the name of a collection or Dictionary object.|
|key||Required. Key associated with the item being retrieved or added.|
|newitem||Optional. Used for Dictionary object only; no application for collections. If provided, newitem is the new value associated with the specified key.|
If key is not found when changing an item, a new key is created with the specified newitem. If key is not found when attempting to return an existing item, a new key is created and its corresponding item is left empty.
