General Info: Associative Array

A set of unique keys linked to a set of values. Each unique key is associated with a value. Think of it as a two column table. MyArray['CA'] = 'California' MyArray['AR'] = 'Arizona'

Languages Focus: Associative Array

Associative arrays are also known as a dictionary or a hash table in other languages.

VB Classic Associative Array

In addition to Add and Item, collections also offer Count and Remove. Notice that Add uses the format of Value, Key (which is backwards from many other languages).

Syntax Example:
Dim States As New Collection
   
States.Add "California", "CA"
States.Add "Nevada", "NV"
    
MsgBox (States.Item("CA"))
