Hi there,

I have created a type called "Workers"
Public Type Worker
    ID As Integer
    Title As String
    FirstName As String
    MiddleName As String
    LastName As String
    Suffix As String
    JobTitle As String
    Clearance As Integer
    JobID As Integer
    HomePh As Long
    MobilePh As Long
    Address As String
    Address2 As String
    Age As Integer
    PC As Integer
    State   As String
    MaritalStatus As String
    NumKids As Integer
End Type


I then declared a variable as Worker

Public Worker as Worker

Now here's the problem. I need to be able to circulate through the whole Worker properties/sub items, what ever they're called.
How do I do it?
Is it possible?

I was thinking of declaring a variable "N" as property
then

for each N in worker
debug.print worker(n)
next

i cant do that ^^^^^^

any help???
thank you

And do what with them? You might be able to enumerate the properties using TypeLib functions but you still won't be able to do much with them.

I agree with Tim on that

You could define a Worker Class, and in that class a variant array called properties and enum on that array.

I think what you are after may be this (requires to redefine your udt as a class):

AzraSound this is for collections. I think he wants to make his own Enumarator (like you can in C or VB.NET)

Oh I see...

Tim mentioned use of the TypeInfo library.  This is a valid solution, though I believe I wrote something to use it once, and it would not work from a compiled exe...only in the IDE.  Something to think about if you plan on perhaps going down that road.

That is, querying an object's properties/values that was part of the project itself.  Loading and querying an external object was not a problem.
