if tables are joined correctly it shouldn't be any problem to get count of a column, and yes - delegating that task to the database should be more efficient concerning the execution time



maybe mysql cannot COUNT the result from more than 1 table, hence the mysql_num_rows function - but isn't it good programming practice to get the SQL to do as much work up front?
