List<Contact> c = [SELECT ID FROM Contact WHERE AccountId !='00190000016ozwL']; 


Database.SaveResult[] srList = Database.delete(c, false);

This is anonymous apex that I am trying to execute.

I am getting the following error while executing.

Illegal assignment from LIST&lt;Database.DeleteResult&gt; to LIST&lt;Database.SaveResult&gt;

Not sure why am I getting this error because "c" is a collection only.

Can someone let me know ?


Database.delete returns Database.deleteResult. Database.saveResult is returned for insert and update operations.

So you should change you code to:

Database.deleteResult[] srList = Database.delete(c, false);

You can find more info here: https://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/apexcode/Content/apex_methods_system_database_deleteresult.htm


I don't think you can do deletes with the SaveResult class

The result of an insert or update DML operation returned by a Database method.

You should be using the DeleteResult classs

Represents the result of a delete DML operation returned by the Database.delete method.
