If I set a collection of userforms = to Nothing, are the forms it contains automatically unloaded and removed from memory, or should I unload them one by one before I destroy the collection?

VBA does not manage memory the way that .NET does, so you are responsible for destroying the objects that you create. You should unload the forms first and then destroy the collection. If you don't then they will hang around consuming until the application ends.
