You will only get the number after you fetched all neccesary records (but then you could count the rows also :-( )
I don't know of any method that can do this efficient without running the query twice.

$rows =  Select count(*) from (<your SQL-Statement>) (so it is emulated in pear DB)

See:

@minichicken
The ora_numrows will only tell you how many rows you have fetched already. You will only get the correct result after you fetched all records. If you fetched 5 record ora_numrows will return 5, after you fetch another 5 rows it will return 10, ...

the Oracle 7 - functions should no longer be used as they are not realy supported and as andrew67 stated hi is aready using the oci8 interface (ocirowcount)
