How many contacts are in my GoldMine database?

There are a few different ways to determine this... here's my favorite:

select count(*) from contact1

This is the SQL query you'd enter to see the total number of contact records in your GoldMine. If you're curious about your other GoldMine database tables, you can easily re-use the query above, e.g.:

select count(*) from conthist

to find out how many history records you have.
