Cursor Behaviors (Database Engine)

Both ODBC and Transact-SQL cursors support specifying cursor characteristics using the ISO cursor behaviors of scrollability and sensitivity.

Cursor behaviors are specified in the following ways:

  • Transact-SQL cursors use the ISO syntax of specifying SCROLL and INSENSITIVE before the CURSOR keyword on the DECLARE statement.

  • The ODBC API uses the SQL_ATTR_CURSOR_SCROLLABLE and SQL_ATTR_CURSOR_SENSITIVITY statement attributes.
