Hi,

When we update the record in the database using prepared statement with the below code.

command.Prepare();
            command.ExecuteNonQuery();

Can we get some integer or some other value in string or int.

like

int status = command.ExecuteNonQuery();

Is this Ok or there is some other way to do this using prepared satement

Thanks in Advance

By definition, it returns the number of rows effected.  Combine with a try/catch to handle errors.

int numrows=0;
try {
     numrows=cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
    }
catch (Exception uhoh)
         {
         // oops
         }

ya ..,
command.ExecuteNonQuery();   ----> returns the integer value

int r_count = command.ExecuteNonQuery();  // will be OK

and also.., MSDN defines this as  ;
