Display number of records in a field in a different table

Is it possible to count the number of records in a form/table and display that value in a field in a different table?


Yes, nearly all client packages support this concept, although they all do it a bit differently. Using ADO, you can call the recordset.movelast method, then inspect the recordset.recordcount property. In PowerBuilder (Jaguar), you can retrieve the datawindow rowcount attribute. In Perl, you need to simply increment a counter after retrieving each row. All of these packages support the ability to retrieve rows on demand, but I don't think you can get a rowcount from any of them when they are used that way.
