        Catch ex As MySqlException

        End Try

Please help me

To count record nos. the syntax is

select count(*) from <TableName> Where <Condition>

To get the number of records the syntax is

Dim x as Integer = .ExecuteScalar()
Int x =.ExecuteScalar()

A little addition to Shark_1's post,

You probably will also want to add a Group By onto that select statement. So for instance if you want to see how many occurances there are of the s_monthname in the table, but only return distinct records in relation to the month name (so only 1 record) you could do something like

select s_monthname, count(*) as Total from sample2 GROUP BY s_monthname

Not only will that return the s_monthname value, but the Total will be how many times that a value in that column has occured in the table (but all in one record)

commented: yeah yeah.. all in one record will display.. so this is the right syntax? gonna try this one +0

Thank you guys, it really works.. i ask again later
