Be careful when using this function, a deleted password can no longer be retrieved.
If you specify an account and/or yourID combination for which no password exists, the plug-in returns error code $$-25300.

This will delete the password for the account “John Deere” from the keychain.

Example 2

Delete Password from Keychain [ Select ; $ErrorCode ; "Sales" ; "Invoices|Notes|REC1001" ]

This will remove the password from the keychain which was stored with the account parameter “Sales” and the yourID parameter “Invoices|Notes|REC1001”.
