Using the SOAP API i would like to retrieve data from a data extension.

How can I ensure uniqueness to the records which i pull? From my understanding Data Extensions do not support an "auto increment" field.

Perhaps there is some metadata which I can rely on?

Each row in a Data Extension has a unique numeric identity column named _CustomObjectKey.
