Right...but if the select was:

select id where emp = '1111'

And emp '1111' had 100 records in it, then the record set would have 100 records, so the question (rephrased) is:

Given the above record set (100 records of emp '1111') how do I:

1) Locate the ONE record where the date is '5-17-2012'?
2) Move the cursor from that position to the record just prior?

Still Googling for an answer will post back when I find it (hopefully).

Pete,

AFAIK, a scrollable cursor is valid only for the current record set, so if
at first you position your file in the id 1005 you couldn't read a prior
record using cursors.
