hi exsperts,

WITH EmpOrg_CTE AS
(SELECT empid, mgrid, lastname, firstname --anchor query
      FROM HR.Employees
WHERE empid = 5 -- starting "top" of tree. Change this to show other root employees

UNION ALL
SELECT child.empid, child.mgrid, child.lastname, child.firstname -- recursive member which refers back to CTE
      FROM EmpOrg_CTE AS parent
      JOIN HR.Employees AS child
      ON child.mgrid=parent.empid
)
SELECT empid, mgrid, lastname, firstname
FROM EmpOrg_CTE;

Any reason you have to use a CURSOR for such a trivial query?  You probably don't even have to use a CTE (If that is the problem).

Ah, I see this question as a progression from this:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Microsoft/Development/MS-SQL-Server/SQL_Server_2008/Q_28125026.html
Is that correct?  I still don't see why you need a CURSOR to accomplish this.
