How do we come to know that we have reached the end of record in a cursor for loop.
For example, i have this PL/SQL block:

      SELECT sal FROM emp;
   FOR emp_rec IN c1 LOOP
      salary_total := salary_total + emp_rec.sal;

And i want to output the total salary when the FOR LOOP reaches the end of the record,how am i going to determine that we have reached the end of the record.

When using cursors, you can use the following code:
WHEN cursor_name%NOTFOUND ...

I used this to exit a loop at the end of the cursor in the following script: http://geertverhoeven.blogspot.com/2...rns-table.html
