Hi,

Is it possible to edit a UDT after it has been added to a collection? I want to do the following:

colRows.Item(lngCurrRecord).arrFields(Index) = Value

As far as I can tell the only way to do this is to set a variable equal to the udt, remove the item from the collection, change the udt, then re-add it to the collection, which is not very clean or efficient.

What I generally do is create an object that wraps the UDT.  Then use methods on the object to access the internal components of the UDT

Well that works. It's strange that just using a UDT doesn't work. Oh well.
