You dont need index.Just use Collections.You can use For ... Each statement:

For Each control In rpt.Controls
 'Check the kontrol Name,Caption, and set the
 'desired properties

Well, msterjey given a hint for you, though it does not seem to work.

Try this:

    Dim ctl
    Dim sect
    For Each sect In DataReport1.Sections
        For Each ctl In sect.Controls
            MsgBox ctl.Name

I dont understand what you mean. I dont think you could have an index to controls in Datareport, I mean a control array cannot be done, if I am right.

>>but i just wonder

What do you mean by this?

And any part. reason that you graded 'B', please read the guidelines for EE, since they dont recommend grading B unless, you expected some more, and that you did not get it enough answer or what.

Thanks for the points.
