This object's creator/owner.


LPDISPATCH/Object Atoms.Parent


Read-only.  For the Atoms collection, this property points to the Molecule object to which the atoms belong.


The following Visual Basic code sets CopyMol to the parent molecule of the atoms collection:

Dim ParentMol As Object        'Parent molecule
Dim TotalAtoms As Object       'Atoms collection
Dim CopyMol As Object          'Molecule object

Set TotalAtoms = ParentMol.Atoms 'Set Atoms collection
Set CopyMol = TotalAtoms.Parent  'Get molecule
'Now CopyMol points to the same thing as ParentMol.

'Code to create ParentMol is omitted.
