I am working a database search by supplying a 'memberName'. There is a field in the data table called 'message_receiver'. I want to count the number if the 'memberName' and the 'messag_receiver' is a match and return the number. How do I do it?

Hi JiaPei Jen ,
It seems you need count of the result set returns from the query according to the parameter passed.
Try the following query:
String query = "SELECT count(*****) as countNo FROM message_thread WHERE message_receiver = '" + memberName + "'";
or
String query = "SELECT count(*****) as countNo FROM message_thread WHERE message_receiver like '%" + memberName + "%'";
Then usinf your resultset retrieve the first element as
String noOfMembers=rs.getString("countNo")
Hope it will hepl you.
