Hi,

As a newbie on Sybase, I try to insert data in a table using a cursor as follows within a window in SQL Advantage :
DECLARE group_name_cur FOR SELECT DISTINCT group_name FROM DECLARE group_name_cur CURSOR FOR SELECT DISTINCT group_name FROM GROUP_AMOUNT
FOR READ ONLY
GO

DECLARE @grp_name char(30)

OPEN group_name_cur
FETCH group_name_cur INTO @grp_name

WHILE (@@sqlstatus = 0)
BEGIN
     INSERT INTO GROUP_AMOUNT VALUES (@grp_name, 3, -1, 0)
     INSERT INTO GROUP_AMOUNT VALUES (@grp_name, 3, -1, 1)

     FETCH group_name_cur INTO @grp_name
END

CLOSE group_name_cur
DEALLOCATE group_name_cur
GO

It raised the issue :

Server 'DEV9_DS', Line 15:
Incorrect syntax near 'group_name_cur'.

Any ideas ???

It's DEALLOCATE CURSOR group_name_cur
so just the word cursor

I suppose you copied your declare wrong?

Thanks It solved my issue but then I found a misprint in the book where I found a example : "Sybase SQL Server 11 Unleashed, p 162".

One more thing don't care of the misprint at the beginnig of my question within the declaration of the cursor.
In fact, with the correct declaration I still had the issue described.

You're right about the Unleashed... strange
The declare part I alreadythought you had copied something double.
Anyway, glad I could help... thanks.
