You can add to and remove items from a collection.  You cannot alter the immediate value of a member of the colection.  Generally these would be objects and classes.

You can, however, update the properties of any object that you have put into a collection.

EG

Form has a textbox called txt_Any
and a command button cmd_update


Then in a module

sub cmd_update_click()
' This will update the textbox on the
' screen with a new value

  dim col as collection

  col.add txt_any, "txt_Any"

  col.item("txt_Any").text = "The value"
end sub


What you could do is create a class
called c_Text with the following lone line of code:

Public Text as string


And then in a module or form


sub etc()

  dim avalue as new C_text
 
  C_text.text = "First value"

  col.add avalue , "key1"

  col.item("key1").text = "value2"

end sub
