> GetSQLRecordcount    

The built-in DCount function gives us the means to return a recordcount of particular search criteria for a table or saved query without parameters. This simple function enables us to return the record count of any SQL string that returns a recordset.

The function will return 0 for erroneous SQL statements so be sure to proof SQL in development before distribution. All errors are displayed to the user.
