IBM DB2 Error Message
-514 the cursor cursor-name is not in a prepared state
Reason for the Error
The application program has tried to use a cursor,� ‘cursor-name,’ that is not in a prepared state. The cursor is associated� with a statement that either (1) has never been prepared, or (2) has been� invalidated by a COMMIT or ROLLBACK (or the IMS/VS or CICS equivalent).
For case (1), ensure that you prepare the statement� that is named in the DECLARE CURSOR statement for ‘cursor-name’ before you� try to open the cursor. For case (2), either do not issue COMMIT or� ROLLBACK until after you are finished using the cursor, or prepare the� statement again after the COMMIT or ROLLBACK.
