Cursors

This page is a stub. Please help us by expanding or merging it with applicable content

In the context of a RDBMS, the Cursor can be considered the current position within a set of records. For example, when using a standard Bound Form, the record that is currently displayed on the form will general represent the current Cursor position of the underlying recordset.

Different types of cursors can be used in different scenarios to provide different behaviors and performance benefits. For example, a Forward-Only cursor is optimized for quickly reading through an entire set of records, but will not be allowed to do anything but more forward through the set.

Depending on the type of recordset and the source to which it connects, different cursor types may be available for use.
