Subject counting rows
Date Mon, 23 Jul 2007 10:49:56 GMT
A question about efficiency: Counting the number of rows in a table.

Currently, I run a select query, then iterate through the rows, 
incrementing a counter. This takes too long. Is there a way to use the 
SQL command:
SELECT count(*) FROM <table>

Or something similar, that quickly returns the number of rows from a 
select query?

Thanks
Jack
