PHP ODBC - odbc_num_rows() - Number of Affected Rows


PHP ODBC - How To Get the Number of Affected Rows?

✍: Guest


If you insert multiple rows with a single INSERT statement, you can use the odbc_num_rows() function to find out how many rows were inserted. odbc_num_rows($result_set) returns the number of affected rows based on the result set object returned by the last INSET, UPDATE or DELETE statement.

The following tutorial script shows you report back the number of rows inserted properly:

  $con = odbc_connect('FYI_SQL_SERVER','sa','FYIcenter');

  $sql = "INSERT INTO fyi_links"
      . " SELECT id+1000, REVERSE(url), notes, counts, time"
      . " FROM fyi_links WHERE id > 1000";
  $res = odbc_exec($con, $sql);
  if (!$res) {
    print("SQL statement failed with error:\n");
    print(odbc_error($con).": ".odbc_errormsg($con)."\n");
  } else {
    $number_of_rows = odbc_num_rows($res);
    print("$number_of_rows rows inserted.\n");


If you run this script, you should get:

2 rows inserted
