Exact number of entries of what?

If you want the number of entries in the whole table, use the count funtion:

[!--sql--][div class=\'sqltop\']SQL[/div][div class=\'sqlmain\'][!--sql1--][span style=\'color:blue;font-weight:bold\']SELECT[/span] [color=blue]COUNT[/color](id) [color=green]FROM[/color] [color=orange]table[/color] [!--sql2--][/div][!--sql3--]

If you want to narrow it down, add a where clause to it.
