I am writing a asp.net page in vb.net and I need to be able to run a query against a table to find the numbers of rows in the table and roll that number into a varaible...


so that I can do calculations on that number....so if there are 56 rows in the table...then I need to pass that so

label1.text = "You have " & total_number_rows & " in the table"

varaible is good too, if I need to use session

thanks!

Write the SP which returns the row count as per the requirement:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306574
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/723352/creating-a-stored-procedure-to-return-the-rowcount-of-another-stored-procedure

Put that as a Out Parameter

Then, set the out parameter to variable after Executing the SP:

Not sure what you have for code as far as calling the query, but assuming you do your query as follows

dim dt as new datatable
dim da as new SqlDataAdapter("SELECT * FROM tblUser", sqlconn.connectionstring)
da.fill(dt)

Open in new window


You can then just do
dt.Rows.Count and that will return the number of rows in your query.

call a sql server store procedure from your code.
store procedure can have output parameter or record set.

Are you getting an error with that code before you run it or when you run it?

Can you try the following and see if the error goes away?

1. Change the SELECT query to "SELECT * FROM CASDGN"

2. Get rid of the line count_SMS_rows = dt.Rows.Count

3. Change "count_SMS_rows = dt.Rows.Count" to "count_SMS_rows = CStr(dt.Rows.Count)"

I'm just trying to figure out where in your code it is throwing an error. My best guess is that the tc_id you're passing in is too big for the SQL type that tc_id is, but I don't know what your data structure is or what the value of tc_id is at this point in the code.
