How can we retrieve no. of rows present in a table without using count function?

RE: select no. of rows from a table.

ISPF table? DB2 table?

RE: select no. of rows from a table.

ISPF table? Is there such a thing? It has been about fifteen years or so since I was on an IBM mainframe but back then it was just a graphical interface.

I get your point - I just haven't heard of ISPF in a long time. I wrote a Clist application and a COBOL application using it.

RE: select no. of rows from a table.

Yes, ISPF is more than a graphical interface — more like a 'suite'. See my REXX blog where I blend REXX and ISPF if you're interested.

So your question is directed at DB2 tables with which I am barely noddingly familiar.

RE: select no. of rows from a table.

I've been off the mainframe for close to twenty years now. Switched to Windows a year or two after Y2K. And I'm not nostalgic.

RE: select no. of rows from a table.

somewhere on the internet there is a pdf manual to be found for free, containing SQL COOKBOOK. I used the tips in it many times. Very easy to use. Try to get it.

about ISPF: do in edit something like this:

PROF NONSENSE
put an 'a' in the margin and give command
MODEL

You will find some ready made sources and ==NOTE== s
The notes can be kept using line command MD on the note or MD999 or whatever you like. An ISPF quick reference for editing can be nice to have if you want to want to renew your knowledge.
