Collections Are Objects Too

In a true object-centric environment, everything is an object. While Access, VBA, and DAO may not go this far, it is true that collections are objects, and so they have their own properties and methods.

Microsoft Access collections

Which are part of the Access object hierarchy

DAO collections

Which are part of the DAO hierarchy

User-defined collections

Which are VBA objects of type Collection
