mysql_affected_rows

(PHP 4, PHP 5)

mysql_affected_rowsGet number of affected rows in previous MySQL operation

Description

int mysql_affected_rows ([ resource $link_identifier ] )

Get the number of affected rows by the last INSERT, UPDATE, REPLACE or DELETE query associated with link_identifier .

Parameters

link_identifier

The MySQL connection. If the link identifier is not specified, the last link opened by mysql_connect() is assumed. If no such link is found, it will try to create one as if mysql_connect() was called with no arguments. If by chance no connection is found or established, an E_WARNING level error is generated.

Return Values

Returns the number of affected rows on success, and -1 if the last query failed.

If the last query was a DELETE query with no WHERE clause, all of the records will have been deleted from the table but this function will return zero with MySQL versions prior to 4.1.2.

When using UPDATE, MySQL will not update columns where the new value is the same as the old value. This creates the possibility that mysql_affected_rows() may not actually equal the number of rows matched, only the number of rows that were literally affected by the query.

The REPLACE statement first deletes the record with the same primary key and then inserts the new record. This function returns the number of deleted records plus the number of inserted records.

Examples

Example #1 mysql_affected_rows() example

<?php
$link 
mysql_connect('localhost''mysql_user''mysql_password');
if (!
$link) {
    die(
'Could not connect: ' mysql_error());
}
mysql_select_db('mydb');

/* this should return the correct numbers of deleted records */
mysql_query('DELETE FROM mytable WHERE id < 10');
printf("Records deleted: %d\n"mysql_affected_rows());

/* with a where clause that is never true, it should return 0 */
mysql_query('DELETE FROM mytable WHERE 0');
printf("Records deleted: %d\n"mysql_affected_rows());
?>

The above example will output something similar to:

Records deleted: 10
Records deleted: 0

Example #2 mysql_affected_rows() example using transactions

<?php
$link 
mysql_connect('localhost''mysql_user''mysql_password');
if (!
$link) {
    die(
'Could not connect: ' mysql_error());
}
mysql_select_db('mydb');

/* Update records */
mysql_query("UPDATE mytable SET used=1 WHERE id < 10");
printf ("Updated records: %d\n"mysql_affected_rows());
mysql_query("COMMIT");
?>

The above example will output something similar to:

Updated Records: 10

Notes

Note: Transactions
If you are using transactions, you need to call mysql_affected_rows() after your INSERT, UPDATE, or DELETE query, not after the COMMIT.

Note: SELECT Statements
To retrieve the number of rows returned by a SELECT, it is possible to use mysql_num_rows().
