I tried to use mysql_num_rows from a results, but that gives me too many....
any ideas how to get exect number of entries?

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.
