Hi,

How do you exactly find out how many rows have been returned by an execute of an sql select statement. I get the resulset. I would like to know then how many rows have been returned from the query. I want to throw an error if no rows or more than one row were retuned. I understand that I can have a while(resultset->next()) and have a counter but I would like to know before I scroll through. Can you help? Thanks!

Use the cursor for the following sql

'select count(*) from <tablename> where <condition-if any>

and fetch the value to an integer variable


Hope this would solve your problem

Thanks, but I don't want to do an extra query.

I want to do:
"select blah from tableA where <condition>"

then I get the recordset and I would like to know
how many rows have been returned before going through
each row. ADO, ODBC have such features. I am not sure
how to do it using occi.

can I also find out if it returned any rows at all
without doing while(rs->next())?

thanks!

Hi

You don't necessarily get all rows returned when a select is executed.

The Oracle library fetches row results in buffer size gulps. This allows you to select an almost unlimited number of rows irrespective of how much memory you have on your client.

If you are hoping to allocate sufficient space in a local array for all returned arrays then you need to reconsider. I would suggest you either dynamically increase the size of the array in blocks of N rows at a time or process the returned database rows differently.

Kind regards

Hi Michael,

Thanks for your reply. I understand what you explained, but I would like to know if some rows(zero or some) have returned or not. I need to know right away after I get the resultset if it's an empty resultset without going into a while loop and examining a counter's value. Is there a way to do that?

Thanks!!

Hi

got you now.

see demo oci\samples\cdemo81.c

in particular

--cut
      if ((status = OCIStmtExecute(svchp, stmthp1, errhp, (ub4) 1, (ub4) 0,
               (CONST OCISnapshot *) NULL, (OCISnapshot *) NULL, OCI_DEFAULT))
          && (status != OCI_NO_DATA))
      {
        checkerr(errhp, status);
        cleanup();
        return OCI_ERROR;
      }
      if (status == OCI_NO_DATA)
        printf("The dept you entered doesn't exist.\n");
      } while (status == OCI_NO_DATA);

--cut

In particular you should consider status = OCIStmtExecute because OCI_NO_DATA is the key to your problem.

Michael,

Thanks for your solution, but I am using occi instead of oci api. I need something with occi. Sad

select count(*) is the only way (other than scrolling through all the records) to know how many records are there in a full resultset.
If all that you need is to find out one row's existence, why don't you have your logic something like this:
first call to rs->next() should not return END_OF_FETCH
second call to rs->next()should return END_OF_FETCH.

I need to know if there is at least one row or not.. and then go through rs->next() and do the logic........ I guess there's not a straightforward way of doing this Sad

But, Thanks for all of your help!!

it is a bad idea to change the title of an existing thread. Please post your question as a new topic. I am reverting the title of this thread to what it was earlier.
