yes.

keep in mind, that for embedded sql, a cursor is the only way to return more than one row.

so the difference between a cursor and a singleton-select is the expected return for a singleton-select is no more than one row.

so, anything that you can code for a singleton-select you can code for a cursor.

update cursors are only restricted in that you can not order them.

You have to include WHERE clause in DECLARE CURSOR statement. You cannot have in FETCH statement. Fetch statement will get the values from table for the filters (WHERE clause) defined in DECLARE CURSOR statement.
