Adds values from a record to dictionary via SQL.
From the result set, the first record is used for values and given key list for the keys.
Returns error in case of SQL error with error message.
As we only use first record, you can use FETCH FIRST 1 ROWS ONLY in the SQL command to only query first record.

This function is currently only supported for FileMaker 11 and newer. If you need it for older versions, please contact us.
