Informix Order by in Stored Procedure Update Cursor

Hi,
   Does anyone know if I can order rows that are placed in an update cursor from a select statement.  My code is
in a stored procedure. Example is below.

FOREACH upd_curs FOR SELECT column1,column2 INTO var1,var2 FROM myTable Order by 1;


Thanks

Yes, you should be able to:
      FOREACH SELECT c1 INTO i FROM tab order by 1
            INSERT INTO tab2 VALUES (i);
      END FOREACH
