Thanks again for you suggestion, the COUNT function looks very useful. I wonder if you could help me further...
Not understanding the concept of recordsets, I never know how to follow/use tutorials or examples that refer to SELECT statements. Are they always used inside a recordset? Or can they also be coded into the page?
I have a Dynamic MySQLi connection setup "connDennis_i"
What code would I enter to use this connection?
And using the COUNT part of the example you show above, "SELECT COUNT(idColumnNAme) as recordCount FROM tableName"
What code would I enter to use this SELECT statement?
And how would I echo the result?
