Why even return the first cursor?  Why not return the second cursor with the
results of the first cursor already wrapped in the second?

Does this make sense?  What they *really* want is the results from the
second cursor.  So why not just give it to them with enough items in the
select list so they can get the data they want?

Subject: is there a way to return multiple cursors from a query

what I need to do is return a cursor from one query in a procedure.... no

What I need to do is :

for every ID returned in the first query returned ....use this in the where
condition of the child query.

Yes they want two separate cursors returned.  so a function is out.

The first query is intensive so I don't want to execute it twice.

This will be executed quite a bit and returns a fair amount of data.
