Hi,
what is the equivalent of rs.recordcount of VB6.0 in VB.NET ?
Dim connstr = "server=s07\mumford;uid=gdbuser;pwd=gdbuser;database=NySample"
        Dim sqlConn3 As New SqlConnection(connstr)
        sqlConn3.Open()
        Dim rsNickNames_sqlcomm As New SqlCommand("SELECT * from tabNickName", sqlConn3)

Can we use like this or is it wise to use ADO ? Pls help,
Maha

You would be much better off with ADO.NET as it is managed code and highly integrated with the rest of the .Net languages.

ADO.Net has many changes from ADO.  There is a good tutorial here:

As far as the count, you can get this from the .count property of your data adapter object once you get that far in your code.  BTW: use a data adapter if you need a count, not a data reader which is forward only and does not support counts/updates.

Good luck.

Oops, I meant to say ".RecordCount" not ".Count" for the data adapters property.
