MOVE(7)			PostgreSQL 9.6.3 Documentation		       MOVE(7)

NAME
       MOVE - position a cursor

SYNOPSIS
       MOVE [ direction	[ FROM | IN ] ]	cursor_name

       where direction can be empty or one of:

	   NEXT
	   PRIOR
	   FIRST
	   LAST
	   ABSOLUTE count
	   RELATIVE count
	   count
	   ALL
	   FORWARD
	   FORWARD count
	   FORWARD ALL
	   BACKWARD
	   BACKWARD count
	   BACKWARD ALL

DESCRIPTION
       MOVE repositions	a cursor without retrieving any	data.  MOVE works
       exactly like the	FETCH command, except it only positions	the cursor and
       does not	return rows.

       The parameters for the MOVE command are identical to those of the FETCH
       command;	refer to FETCH(7) for details on syntax	and usage.

OUTPUTS
       On successful completion, a MOVE	command	returns	a command tag of the
       form

	   MOVE	count

       The count is the	number of rows that a FETCH command with the same
       parameters would	have returned (possibly	zero).

EXAMPLES
	   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;

COMPATIBILITY
       There is	no MOVE	statement in the SQL standard.
