Can somebody tell me if there is a way to know the number of rows returned or included in a cursor without having to cross the entire result set ? a function like "resultSetCount" or something like that ? I thought that %rowcount could work, but this returns the current row number, and therefore I need to fetch all records until i get the last one.
I'm using Oracle 8i.
