    thank you very good tutorial;
    but i have a problem, is there any thing wrong if i use the CURSOR in a SP after some SELECT and INSERT statements.

    i mean in a S/procedure is it necessary that the CURSOR should be used before all other SELECT,EDIT,DELETE statements.
    because i am getting a error

  2. Yes CURSOR needs to be declare before Query Statement
