Question by user1868569

How can i get the count of columns in my table, searched google through, but can’t find a straight answer.

Thank you in advance.

Answer by Starx

Such information are located in INFORMATION_SCHEMA you can query a table called COLUMNS to get the number of columns in a database.

This query will give you the column count.

WHERE table_schema = 'DB_NAME' AND table_name = 'TABLE_NAME'
