What do you mean by cursor within a cursor?

You can open multiple cursors at one time.  For ex., you can open cursor1, fetch a row, open cursor2 based on the row fetched from cursor1, nest the loops, etc.

No. I have used multiple cursors, and that concept is fine.

An analogy, SUBSELECT ===> This is a SELECT within a SELECT. Similarly, Can we have a cursor within a cursor ?

Thanks,
