If you do search in forum you can get info of why this is used.


This is one of the technique to know whether dataset is empty or not,
If dataset is emtpy then RC=4
if dataset has more than 1 record then RC=0

or it could be just to copy only first record

Have you considered using the fine manual for explanation about COUNT?
