ReferencedTable Property

This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.

The ReferencedTable property specifies a Microsoft SQL Server table whose PRIMARY KEY constraint constrains values added to the table that owns the foreign key referenced by the Key object.

.ReferencedTable [= value]


An expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list


A string that specifies a SQL Server table by name


Read/write prior to foreign key definition. Read-only for Key objects referencing defined foreign keys.

HRESULT GetReferencedTable(SQLDMO_LPBSTR pRetVal);
HRESULT SetReferencedTable(SQLDMO_LPCSTR NewValue);
SQL Distributed Management Objects (SQL-DMO) strings are always returned as OLE BSTR objects. A C/C++ application obtains a reference to the string. The application must release the reference using SysFreeString.

Setting the ReferencedTable property is required when defining a foreign key by using the Key object. For more information, see Key Object.
