Remarks

Use the Keys property to access the values of the key fields for the record to delete. For example, you can use these values to keep a log of deleted records.

Note

This property contains only the key fields. To access the non-key fields, use the Values property.

The Keys property returns an object that implements the IOrderedDictionary interface. The object contains DictionaryEntry objects that represent the key fields of the record to delete.

Note

As a shortcut, you can also use the indexer of the IOrderedDictionary object to access the field values directly.
