Unable to retrieve inserted row count in MySQL using ADO from AutoIT

Recommended Posts

From AutoIT script (Pretty much same syntax as VBA), Tried connecting to MySQL Server. While i am able to insert a new row successfully, unable to verify the rowcount (# of inserted row - to verify success or failure).

Have tried two different methods -

  1. to use the RecordsAffected variable from Connection Execute function
  2. to use the RecordSet and retrieve the rowcount

But have been missing something and none of these methods return the actual row count.

Any help would be appreciated.!!!

I had almost the same problem, Rowcount and shit didnt work, no matter what I tried.
When you do an .GetRows on your executed statement, you will get a 2-dimensional array back.

UBound($Array) gets you the # of rows

UBound($Array, 2) gets you the # of columns

I ended up using this method since it would give me the same result as rowcount would.

Thanks for that info. But as mentioned in my post, i am trying that GetRows option also.

That doesnt work either. PFA the error im getting.

BTW as i said, i am trying to insert a new row. Did GetRows work for you for an insert statement? if so would you mind sharing the code to cross check if i am missing anything?

Appreciate your help!

Pretty much yes, except that im trying to do an "insert into table... on duplicate key update " query which means it can be 1 inserted or 2 rows updated. And thats the value what i wanted to check for.

P.S. To be more specific - in this situation, row count will return 1 if a row was inserted, 2 if a row was updated and 0 if it was an identical match to an existing record (so neither insert nor update).

I don't have enough knowledge of MySQL capabilities/bugs but maybe there exists something similar to SQLite's sqlite3_changes() which returns the number of DB changes within the last terminated statement over the current DB connection.
