I want to delete the rowid retrieved from
my cursor, without using an array.
Is it possible to run an sql inside a cursor ?
It works but is it reliable ?
Thank U

while (1)
fetch rowid
delete rowid

I dont think it works perfectly every time. You may get Snapshot too old error (ORA 1555).
Generally under this conditions we create a temporary table with the rowids you want to delete,declare a cursor on this table and delete data from the main table.
