you want to use the 'SET FEEDBACK xx' SQL*Plus command ... the default is 6
or more rows

you can type this command at the SQL> prompt each time you log in, or put it
in a 'login.sql' file (you can set up a local or global login.sql -- check
out the docs at http://tahiti.oracle.com

set feed on

set feed 6
will only show the resulting number if 6 or more rows are generated by your
query

set feed off
never tells you how many rows are returned
