HI, I am running a cursor which is updating around 15000
records in a table.

I need to see the number of records which are getting updated
or processed by the cursor while the query is running..

Can anyone please let me know how do i do that in a easy
manner without affecting the performance of my Cursor ?

Thanks

> while the query is running..

You mean like a progressbar counter?  Not possible... unless you want to see the messages keep scrolling like

processing #1
processing #2
processing #3
processing #4
processing #5
etc

which will flood the messages window

If you mean a count after the loop is complete, then something like a counter

declare @counter int
set @counter = 0
while @@FETCH_STATUS = 0 begin
      set @counter = @counter + 1
      .....
      fetch next from mycursor .....
end
print convert(varchar(10), @counter) + ' records processed in cursor'
0

Re the first case, you can use

declare @counter int, @msg varchar(200)
set @counter = 0
while @@FETCH_STATUS = 0 begin
      set @counter = @counter + 1
      set @msg = 'processing #' + convert(varchar(10), @counter)
      RAISERROR(@msg,0,1) WITH NOWAIT;
      .....
      fetch next from mycursor .....
end
