How many records did UPDATE update? [message #117605] Thu, 28 April 2005 09:04 Go to next message

Their are times when I want to know just how many records my UPDATE sql command updated. Primarly when I want to know if it updated 0 records which tells me that the record didn't exist in the first place and I should flag an error. Right now, I go thru and try to do a SELECT then UPDATE. That seems like an extra operation too many in most cases.

Note, I'm using OCI for this project. So we're talking c here, not C++.

You can get the attribute value for OCI_ATTR_ROW_COUNT from the statement handle immediately after the ocistmtexecute command has completed.
