I am trying to get all the columns names using API. below is the code I am trying ,i need to iterate through the API object to get the Name of columns. But I am getting an error "ExactTarget.ExactTargetClient.APIObject object does not contain public definition of getenumerator" with this..

RetrieveRequest request = new RetrieveRequest();
            request.ObjectType = "DataExtensionField";
            request.Properties =
            new string[]
            SimpleFilterPart sfp1 = new SimpleFilterPart();
            String[] sfp1Values = { Start.Text };
            sfp1.Property = "DataExtension.CustomerKey";
            sfp1.SimpleOperator = SimpleOperators.equals ;
            sfp1.Value = sfp1Values;              
            request.Filter = sfp1;

            status = client.Retrieve(request, out requestID, out Results);                  
                 foreach (ExactTarget.ExactTargetClient.APIObject deo in Results)
                 { foreach (ExactTarget.ExactTargetClient.DataExtensionField prop in  deo)
                     { string name = prop.Name;                                                  



How should I solve this? Is there any other way to do it.. Thanks in Advance.


You should be able to use the describe object to get all of the fieldnames.
