Hey ,

I got The Solution .

Below is the query which throws the total column count.

SELECT MAX(COLUMN_ID)
FROM user_tab_columns
WHERE table_name = <TABLE_NAME>

Hopefully you named your topic "Oracle" otherwise we could think it is a MS/ACCESS question.
Oh wait... this is Oracle FAQ site... would be great if everyone give "Oracle" as title then we would be sure they don't post another kind of question.

Hurry? Do you think we will answer in a minute?
What about just the last part of your question?
Of course using complete words and not IM/SMS speak.

What do you mean by You do not want to count manually by giving desc <table_name>. What do you want to count ? Do you want count the number of columns in a given table or do you want the count the number of rows in the given table. Either way you have to use the same function, but the source will vary depends on what you want to count ? For how to count the number of rows/columns read the oracle sql reference manual and search for the keyword count.

Raj

You can also use this query too to find the Number of Columns in a table.

select count(*) from user_tab_columns where table_name='TABLENAME';
