MOVE repositions a cursor without retrieving any data.
MOVE works exactly like the

The parameters for the
MOVE command are identical to those of the
FETCH command; refer to FETCH for details on syntax and usage.
On successful completion, a
MOVE command returns a command tag of the form
count is the number of rows that a
FETCH command with the same parameters would have returned (possibly zero).
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;
There is no
MOVE statement in the SQL standard.
