NAME

       MOVE - position a cursor

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.
