NAME

       MOVE - position a cursor

SYNOPSIS

       MOVE [ direction [ FROM | IN ] ] cursor_name

       where direction can be empty or one of:

           NEXT
           PRIOR
           FIRST
           LAST
           ABSOLUTE count
           RELATIVE count
           count
           ALL
           FORWARD
           FORWARD count
           FORWARD ALL
           BACKWARD
           BACKWARD count
           BACKWARD ALL

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(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.
