ReferencedKey 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 ReferencedKey property returns the name of the PRIMARY KEY or UNIQUE key constraint implementing the primary key referenced by a foreign key.



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



HRESULT GetReferencedKey(SQLDMO_LPBSTR pRetVal);
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.

The ReferencedKey property returns a value for Key objects referencing foreign key definitions only. If the Type property of the Key object is SQLDMOKey_Foreign, the Key object references a foreign key definition.
