I have a PL/SQL function (running on Oracle 10g) in which I update some rows. Is there a way to find out how many rows were affected by the UPDATE? When executing the query manually it tells me how many rows were affected, I want to get that number in PL/SQL.
You use the
You need to call it straight after the statement which you need to find the affected row count for.
set serveroutput ON; DECLARE i NUMBER; BEGIN UPDATE employees SET status = 'fired' WHERE name LIKE '%Bloggs'; i := SQL%rowcount; --note that assignment has to precede COMMIT COMMIT; dbms_output.Put_line(i); END;
