Sybase doesn't have a cursor-limit parameter. The practical limit is imposed by other things, such as the amount of RAM, I/O, etc. If you make sure any code that opens a cursor closes it and deallocates it, it's unlikely this will ever be a problem. Note the last two lines in this example:

DECLARE Cur1 CURSOR READ_ONLY FOR SELECT name FROM TableA

DECLARE @name varchar(40)
OPEN Cur1

...<loop>

CLOSE Cur1
DEALLOCATE Cur1

Hi,

While I appreciate your question is specifically relating to a cursor, I am curious about your need for a cursor.  Having working with Sybase, MSSQL, and Oracle.  I have found that I rarely use cursors except in Oracle.  What do you need the cursor for??
