CLOSE Statement

The CLOSE statement closes a named cursor, thereby allowing its resources to be reused.

After closing an explicit cursor, you can reopen it with the OPEN statement. You must close an explicit cursor before reopening it.

After closing a cursor variable, you can reopen it with the OPEN FOR statement. You need not close a cursor variable before reopening it.
