Gets the value of the 'Orphan Source' property of the first data source in the container.



The 'Orphan Source' property is applicable to lookup data sources. Its value is the data source name for which values of the lookup data source must be displayed that do not occur in the lookup data source itself. This property is used to properly display old (obsolete) values that are no longer valid for the lookup data source, but do not have a proper display value because they still appear in the table data. By referring to a data source with a less strict condition, the original display values can still be shown, but no longer selected.
