Hi Jacques,

It is not reliable if there is row migration.

This reminds me, Mr. Still, you posted an example once to the list about doing a fetch in rowid order to avoid revisiting the same block when doing a full table scan of a table, so that reading and updating every row in a table would avoid the dreaded "snapshot too old". I told a developer about that today and showed him a code sample, but he says he still had a "snapshot too old". Would it be possible for you to post that snippet of code again? Jacques R. KilchoŽr
