Accessing items of external list

I was working with external list and was trying to access some of the items. But then i get to know that when you want to access the list items of external list, you cannot use ID field. You need to use BdcIdentity field to work with these items.

Another point that i noted after getting those items is that you have to iterate items by using SPListItemCollection and inside that SPFieldsCollection for that item to get values of the fields. you directly cannot get the value.

I hope this helps.
