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.

       The parameters for the MOVE command are identical to those of the FETCH
       command; 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.
