In the attached code, if there are no records, will "x" be null?  If not, what will it be?

Thanks.

var x = from i in dc.table where i.field == "xyz" select i;

Actually what I found out by testing was that it returns an empty collection, i.e., x.Count() = 0.

Thanks for taking a look

Testing proves out that x is not null when the statement is executed.
