NAV 2009: SETRANGE and RecordID

I think to remember that RecordID here just introduced in Dynamics NAV 2009. Here it were used in the Record Link table for the first time.

Well I'm working on a customer who is still on NAV 2009 R2. And I'm trying to use RecordID. But it surely doesn't work the way I've gotten used to in NAV 2016 and NAV 2017.

A simple thing I can't get to work is a simple SETRANGE("Record ID",RecID). If that doesn't work, then it's really like all the fun of using RecordID and NAV 2009 goes away!

Can anyone clarify this to me?
