An entity without a primary key in a relational database is invalid. If you can you should add a surrogate key to it. If you can't you can map every field as a composite key, though this will mean your entity can't support duplicates any more.

I'd suggest you search on the keywords in Paul's post above. That will get you going. As he said, though, your table needs to have a primary key.
