I am looking for an example of saving the record count in a Adobe Campaign query. I then want to save the count into a database table table. Can anyone point me in the direction of saving just the record count and not the actual records.
Were you able to have a look at Jean-Serge's suggestions?
Let us know,
In a workflow, after the Query activity, an event variable vars.recCount is set with the result set count.
Or you can change the dimension with Change dimension activity, to use the insert / update integrated, with the value of recCount.
1. Direct SQL instructions (update, insert) into your dedicated report tables:
2. Using rather the Entity schemas (cleaner, but a bit less obvious):
set the entity properties then
(or method save of the entity)
Same system is valuable if you need to count several objects, in that case it is not vars.recCount or legnth that it is needed, but a queryDef with count (group by) clauses; and then you put the count values in the dedicated report tables the same way, by using sqlExec or session.Write or save entity, based on the loop on the several count values.
By the way, you have created another ticket with same subject today as well, please keep only this one, close the other. Many thanks in advance for other readers.
Thank you for the response. Much appreciated. And apologies for the slow response.
