Remarks

Use the Keys property to access the values of the key field for an updated record. For example, you can use these values to keep a log of updated records.

The Keys property returns an object that implements the System.Collections.Specialized.IOrderedDictionary interface. The object contains System.Collections.DictionaryEntry objects that represent the fields of the updated record.

Note

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