Cursor Question [message #310940] Wed, 02 April 2008 21:29 Go to next message

I'm cursing a lot at cursors lately.

Can an explicit cursor actually process more than one line of code in a loop, or would it be best to utizilie the Cursor For Loop instead?

I've been trying to do something with teh explicit cursor, and I get a single output, but I need the block to loop and show the output for 20 different instances, not one.

If I'm doing the wrong thing, I'll be happy. If I'm doing something right, then I know something's wrong with my code design or mathematics, which would really tick me off!

http://asktom.oracle.com contains many fine coding examples

If you can solve the problem using SQL, then use only SQL.
If you can solve the problem using only SQL, then use PL/SQL.
