We'll talk about the basics of cursors. These let you move through records one at a time and perform processing on each record.

Hi Team,

Thansk for the link on Cursor Introduction. I understand the difference between Client Side and Server Side Cursors, but I don't know how to tell which was used in the Example.

If the example is a Client Side Cursor, how would it be written using a Server Side Cursor?

If the example is a Server Side Cursor, how would it be written using a Client Side Cursor?

The only reason I ask is because a recent Interview task was to write two procedures: One that used a Client Side Cursor, then the same procedure using a Server Side Cursor.
