asked on

reading total number of row with preparedstatement

Expert Exchange

Is there a way to read the total number of rows from a select satement using prepared statement, instead of having to loop throght the data and count as you go?
 rs1 = getIP.getResultSet();
 while (rs1.next())
    packIP(rs1.getString(1));

but instead

int total =  command

Thanks

You can try:
Select Count(myTable.*) as Total
From myTable

That should return 1 row with a value and a column header 'Total'



Good Luck!!!

What language are you using?  Most have something like rs1.RecordCount as a function that can be referenced once the rs1 has been populated.

Using Java
Sorry - don't know much about Java.  pitster's initial response will work for any query language so if you can't find another way it should get you there.
