Updatable Cursors

I am trying to write updatable cursors in a stored procedure? Can I get
any help to write updatable cursors?

Any help would be appreciated very much.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Can you post some sample data along with table DDLs so that others can
better understand your requirements? Most likely you can use efficient
set-based logic & avoid cursors which are generally lousy, slow & resource

As Anith, I discourage you from writing cursors. Cursors have their
place, but it is a feature which you should use rarely. The performance
of cursor compare to the corresponding set-based operation is often
magntitudes slower.

If you have a problem which actually is best addressed by a cursor, don't
bother using WHERE CURRENT OF. Make the cursor INSENSITIVE, and update
the rows through key values. I have *never* had any need for WHERE CURRENT

Oh no! It's me and transactions again :) I'm not really sure whether this is a limitation of psycopg or postgresql. When I use multiple cursors in a transaction, the records inserted at the start of the transaction aren't visible to those later on in that transaction (using a different cursor). Attached is a simplified example (the except's are a bit blunt, I know) of what I'm trying to do. In reality, the different cursors are...

I have been using Access since office 4.3. I have just upgraded to Office 2003 and am having issues with creating updatable queries. If I link one table to a selection query based on the same table, the resulting query is not updatable. OR If I link 2 tables together that don't have a primary key the result is not updatable. I know I was able to do this in previous versions since I usually don't use a primary key. Thanks

Hi All Here's my scenario. I have a main form (shows team details and rostered shift for selected date). This form is updatable. On this form I have a subform which shows agents belonging to the team on the Main Form. Subform is also updatable. Within the subform I have 2 more subforms. The first shows absence details, if any, for the selected date (Main Form) and agent (subform on Main form). When I open the subform from...

Hello, I am doing some multithreading in an MDI app, and I can't seem to get the cursor to stay as an Hourglass. I call: Cursor.Current = cursors.wait at the beginning of my routing, and set it back to cursors.default when the thread ends (using a callback)

Does Me.Cursor.Current=Cursors.WaitCursor set the current property of Me.Cursor to Cursors.WaitCursor And Me.Cursor.Current=Cursors.Default set the Me.Current property to something (default) stored in Me.Cursor. Or is Cursors.Default some process wide cursor shape? What is a correct statement?

I have a postgresql backend with an access front end and I am trying to redefine the recordset of the form to use an ADO recordset. The problem is that the CursorType always changes to AdOpenStatic, even if I choose adOpenDynamic. If anyone has any thoughts, please let me know. The form works great for viewing, but I cannot update or insert any new records. Below is the code I am using: connectstr = "DSN=SAP_PG;uid=postgres" Set conn...
