Hi, Do you mean you want the identity of the last row which was deleted?
If this is the case you can't get it form @@identity as you would for inserts.
You could try adding a delete trigger to the table and retrieving values using some SQL along these lines:
SELECT fieldName FROM Deleted
Deleted is a system generated table containing all of the deleted rows.

you can use IDENT_CURRENT( 'table_name' ) wich will give u last ID for that table, so if your last identity ID was 358 and u delete last 2 rows IDENT_CURRENT will return 358
