I want to get the number of records in a recordset using a stored procedure.  The recordcount approach has been returning (-1) since i converted from dynamic sql in the web page to a stored procedure.  What is the best way to get the recordcount from the stored procedure?

This should work

CREATE PROCEDURE GetRecordCount
(
      @RecordCount bigint OUTPUT
)
AS
      SELECT
            @RecordCount = COUNT(*)
      FROM
            TABLENAME

or you can use a function as well

You can @@rowcount to return the count of records.
Check the attached code

 
CREATE PROCEDURE YourStoredProcedure
(
      @RecordCount bigint OUTPUT
)
AS
begin
      SELECT *  FROM TABLENAME


     SET @RecordCount = @@rowcount 

end
go

Open in new window

@@rowcount will return total number of records in the query that executed just before
