Hi gang,

I'm working on a VB6 legacy app at my client and I haven't touched VB6 in about 9 years. I am using a custom collection to store instances of a custom object I created. I had no problem adding objects to the collection. My question is, when referring to one of n objects in the collection,  are the positions 1-to-n (one to n) or 0-to-(n-1). They appear to be one-based because I am getting subscript out of range errors, but I thought I would run it by you guys to find out if I am missing something.

Best regards,
Kevin

use lbound(  array ) and ubound( array )
for collections, they are 1-based.

Thanks for the reply. I found another reference that says that VB6 collections are indeed one-based:

However, collections are not arrays and do not support the ubound and lbound functions. Since you replied so quickly, I'll accept your comment as the solution.

VB6 Collections are one-based. They have only one property, i.e. Count. The UBound and LBound functions do not work on collections, only on arrays.
