Remarks

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

The OldValues 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 with their original values.

Note

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