    HI Guys,
    I needed to know - which is faster a select query or cursor
    In the Pl/sql procedure?

    Thanks.

    I would guess that a single SELECT statement would be faster than a cursor because there would be more overhead managing the cursor.

    Setup a test and time them both. That would be the easiest way...

    HI Jeff,
    How do you set up the testing ?

    Can you be more specific about that?

    I don't think there would be much difference - all SQL statements in Oracle are implemented either explicitly or implicitly as cursors.

    to test use dbms_utility.get_time, put it in your pl/sql procedure and dbms_output it
