Reply with quote

I would like to have clarification on the following doubt:-

I have Declared a cursor "WITH HOLD" option.

So where will be the cursor pointer when I CLOSE the cursor and reopen the same CURSOR, is it at the Last record processed?

Kindly answer above query if you are very sure.
No guessing please..!!!

WITH HOLD only keeps the cursor position when you do a COMMIT, if you close and open a cursor you are back to beginning!

The hold option appears to apply to commits only, while the close command appears to reset without any exception to the hold option.....
Draw your own conclusion......

DB2 does not have records, selects/fetches do not return records, they return rows.

since you obviously want accurate answers, you should phrase your questions accurately.
