CONTENTS

Synopsis

SYNOPSIS

MOVE [ direction { FROM | IN } ] cursorname

DESCRIPTION

MOVE repositions a cursor without retrieving any data. MOVE works exactly like the FETCH command, except it only positions the cursor and does not return rows.

Refer to FETCH [fetch(7)] for details on syntax and usage.

OUTPUTS

On successful completion, a MOVE command returns a command tag of the form

MOVE count

The count is the number of rows that a FETCH command with the same parameters would have returned (possibly zero).

EXAMPLES

BEGIN WORK;
DECLARE liahona CURSOR FOR SELECT * FROM films;

-- Skip the first 5 rows: MOVE FORWARD 5 IN liahona; MOVE 5

-- Fetch the 6th row from the cursor liahona: FETCH 1 FROM liahona; code | title | did | date_prod | kind | len -------+--------+-----+------------+--------+------- P_303 | 48 Hrs | 103 | 1982-10-22 | Action | 01:37 (1 row)

-- Close the cursor liahona and end the transaction: CLOSE liahona; COMMIT WORK;

COMPATIBILITY

There is no MOVE statement in the SQL standard.
