What are objects and collections?

An object represents an element of the OLE Automation application. A collection is an object that contains several other objects, usually of the same type. For example, all the bookmark objects in a document are contained in a single Bookmarks collection object of the Word application. Using appropriate properties and methods, OLE Automation permits the modification of a single object or an entire collection of objects.
