Returns the first object in the collection.

expression .GetFirst

expression A variable that represents an Items object.

Return Value

An Object value that represents the first object contained by the collection.

Returns Nothing if no first object exists, for example, if there are no objects in the collection. To ensure correct operation of the GetFirst, GetLast, GetNext, and GetPrevious methods in a large collection, call GetFirst before calling GetNext on that collection and call GetLast before calling GetPrevious. To ensure that you are always making the calls on the same collection, create an explicit variable that refers to that collection before entering the loop.
