Thanks, but that's an additional query. I was wondering if there may be a PHP function that can operate on the $result or perhaps $link of the single query that uses a LIMIT clause and have the information [count(*) had there not been a LIMIT clause "count_no_limit(*) maybe?" even though there was a LIMIT clause]. Something like mysql_info.
