mysqli_stmt::$affected_rows

mysqli_stmt_affected_rows

(PHP 5)

mysqli_stmt::$affected_rows -- mysqli_stmt_affected_rowsReturns the total number of rows changed, deleted, or inserted by the last executed statement

Description

Object oriented style

Procedural style

int mysqli_stmt_affected_rows ( mysqli_stmt $stmt )

Returns the number of rows affected by INSERT, UPDATE, or DELETE query.

This function only works with queries which update a table. In order to get the number of rows from a SELECT query, use mysqli_stmt_num_rows() instead.

Parameters

stmt

Procedural style only: A statement identifier returned by mysqli_stmt_init().

Return Values

An integer greater than zero indicates the number of rows affected or retrieved. Zero indicates that no records where updated for an UPDATE/DELETE statement, no rows matched the WHERE clause in the query or that no query has yet been executed. -1 indicates that the query has returned an error. NULL indicates an invalid argument was supplied to the function.

Note:

If the number of affected rows is greater than maximal PHP int value, the number of affected rows will be returned as a string value.

Examples

Example #1 Object oriented style

<?php
$mysqli 
= new mysqli("localhost""my_user""my_password""world");

/* check connection */
if (mysqli_connect_errno()) {
    
printf("Connect failed: %s\n"mysqli_connect_error());
    exit();
}

/* create temp table */
$mysqli->query("CREATE TEMPORARY TABLE myCountry LIKE Country");

$query "INSERT INTO myCountry SELECT * FROM Country WHERE Code LIKE ?";

/* prepare statement */
if ($stmt $mysqli->prepare($query)) {

    
/* Bind variable for placeholder */
    
$code 'A%';
    
$stmt->bind_param("s"$code);

    
/* execute statement */
    
$stmt->execute();

    
printf("rows inserted: %d\n"$stmt->affected_rows);

    
/* close statement */
    
$stmt->close();
}

/* close connection */
$mysqli->close();
?>

Example #2 Procedural style

<?php
$link 
mysqli_connect("localhost""my_user""my_password""world");

/* check connection */
if (mysqli_connect_errno()) {
    
printf("Connect failed: %s\n"mysqli_connect_error());
    exit();
}

/* create temp table */
mysqli_query($link"CREATE TEMPORARY TABLE myCountry LIKE Country");

$query "INSERT INTO myCountry SELECT * FROM Country WHERE Code LIKE ?";

/* prepare statement */
if ($stmt mysqli_prepare($link$query)) {

    
/* Bind variable for placeholder */
    
$code 'A%';
    
mysqli_stmt_bind_param($stmt"s"$code);

    
/* execute statement */
    
mysqli_stmt_execute($stmt);

    
printf("rows inserted: %d\n"mysqli_stmt_affected_rows($stmt));

    
/* close statement */
    
mysqli_stmt_close($stmt);
}

/* close connection */
mysqli_close($link);
?>

The above examples will output:

rows inserted: 17
