Sometimes, when working with T-SQL scripts, you might want to skip the message "(N row(s) affected)" message.
You get this message when you execute T-SQL statements or stored procedures that they affect rows. To this end, SQL Server returns the number of records which were affected by the database operation you performed.
If you want to suppress this message, then you can use the "SET NOCOUNT
So, for example you can try something like this:
SET NOCOUNT ON;
-- Your query goes here
SET NOCOUNT OFF;
Below, you can see an example with screenshots that illustrates the above
