Users Collection (ADOX)

Contains all stored User objects of a catalog or group.


The Users collection of a Catalog represents all the catalog's users. The Users collection for a Group represents only the users that have a membership in the specific group.

The Append method for a Users collection is unique for ADOX. You can:

  • Add a new user to the collection by using the Append method.

The remaining properties and methods are standard to ADO collections. You can:

  • Access a user in the collection with the Item property.

  • Return the number of users contained in the collection with the Count property.

  • Remove a user from the collection with the Delete method.

  • Update the objects in the collection to reflect the current database's schema with the Refresh method.


Before appending a User object to the Users collection of a Group object, a User object with the same Name as the one to be appended must already exist in the Users collection of the Catalog.
