PHP query not returning proper number of rows.

PHP query not returning proper number of rows.

PHP query not returning proper number of rows.

I have a PHP script that connects to our IBM DB2 Server (as400).

When I run
$query = "SELECT COUNT(row) FROM table";
$execute = odbc_exec($conn,$query);
$result = odbc_fetch_array($execute);
I get a response of 6611.

but when I run
$query = "SELECT row FROM table";
$execute = odbc_exec($con,$query);
while(odbc_fetch_array($execute)) {
$count ++;
I only get 3406.

What gives???? It seems if the count() is lower then the $count is closer but never the same..
please help!!

I've done a
while ($r < $row) {
And this works, but is VERY VERY VERY SLOW, and times out if more than a few thousand results.

RE: PHP query not returning proper number of rows.

I had an older release of the iSeries Client on my Webserver, so I updated it to the latest (v5r4) which updated the ODBC drive, and viola.. works great.
