# Python: Count the number of rows of a given SQLite table

## Python SQLite Database: Exercise-8 with Solution

Write a Python program to count the number of rows of a given SQLite table.

Sample Solution:

Python Code :

``````import sqlite3
from sqlite3 import Error
def sql_connection():
try:
conn = sqlite3.connect('mydatabase.db')
return conn
except Error:
print(Error)

def sql_table(conn):
cursorObj = conn.cursor()
# Create the table
cursorObj.execute("CREATE TABLE salesman(salesman_id n(5), name char(30), city char(35), commission decimal(7,2));")
print("Number of records before inserting rows:")
cursor = cursorObj.execute('select * from salesman;')
print(len(cursor.fetchall()))
# Insert records
cursorObj.executescript("""
INSERT INTO salesman VALUES(5001,'James Hoog', 'New York', 0.15);
INSERT INTO salesman VALUES(5002,'Nail Knite', 'Paris', 0.25);
INSERT INTO salesman VALUES(5003,'Pit Alex', 'London', 0.15);
INSERT INTO salesman VALUES(5004,'Mc Lyon', 'Paris', 0.35);
INSERT INTO salesman VALUES(5005,'Paul Adam', 'Rome', 0.45);
""")
conn.commit()
print("\nNumber of records after inserting rows:")
cursor = cursorObj.execute('select * from salesman;')
print(len(cursor.fetchall()))

sqllite_conn = sql_connection()
sql_table(sqllite_conn)

if (sqllite_conn):
sqllite_conn.close()
print("\nThe SQLite connection is closed.")
``````

Sample Output:

```Number of records before inserting rows:
0

Number of records after inserting rows:
5

The SQLite connection is closed.
```
