I wonder if someone could trll me how to count the amount of posts in my db?
I got the following code for my db connection:

Set Connect = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Connect.Open "driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};dbq=" & Server.MapPath("db/db.mdb")
Set Recset = Connect.execute("SELECT * FROM register ORDER BY namn")

PS! I've searched around the forum but didn't find anything that helped me DS!

sql has a serie of so called agregation function. COUNT() is such a funtion. COUNT(*) will count the number of records, and the ' as numberofposts' will just give another name to the variable that contains the count-value.

you can hen acces it like any other recordset. Only difference is that this one only contains one variable-value pair
