     Shows how a VB Class and Collections can be used to manipulate data in memory. A very simple example showing some intermediate-advanced stuff of data manipulation. To handle a lot of data newbies normally use arrays so I hope this example will help them understand Collections + Classes and appreciate their worth. You could use the technique showed in this example to manipulate data in memory then you could save it in an XML file or database. You could load database table info and manipulate it / update it. You could do a lot with much less code without breaking a sweat. The code in Employee and EmployeeCollection classes are commented. Understand those two classes. They are pretty small. The comments should help you understand them well. I recommend you look at the Employee Class first and understand Then look at the EmployeeCollection Class Then read the code in this form. Vote if you like this small elegant solution. Voting much appreciated. Apurva Lawale -

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
