table.RECORDS_GET Function

Syntax

Number_of_Records as N = Records_Get()

Description

Returns the number of records in the table.

Discussion

The <TBL>.RECORDS_GET() method returns the Number_of_Records in the open table referenced by <TBL>. Deleted records are not included in the count. To determine the number of deleted records that are still consuming space in a table, use the <TBL>.RECORDS_DELETED() method. To determine the number of records in an index or query list use the <INDEX>.RECORDS_GET() method.

Example 

This script shows an alternative way to fetch through all the records in a table, without using the <TBL>.FETCH_EOF() method.

tbl = table.open("c:\a5\a_sports\customer.dbf")
tbl.fetch_first()
count = tbl.records_get()
for i = 1 TO count
    trace.write("Record #:" + str(i))
    trace.writeln(" " + tbl.last_name)
    tbl.fetch_next()
next i
tbl.close()
