Item Property (ADO)
Indicates a specific member of a collection, by name or ordinal number.
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)
