Allows one or more procedural SQL statements to be iteratively executed.
The LOOP statement can be used to iteratively execute a sequence of one or more procedural SQL statement.
If label appears at the beginning and at the end of the LOOP statement, the same value must be specified in both places.
Specifying label is optional, however, if label appears at the end of the LOOP statement, it must also appear at the beginning.
A label is required at the beginning if the LEAVE statement is to be used to terminate the LOOP statement.
The LOOP statement itself does not include a mechanism for terminating the iteration.
The LOOP statement can be terminated by executing the LEAVE statement. The LOOP statement will also terminate if an exception condition is raised, in accordance with the normal exception handling process.
The LOOP statement does not establish any form of local scope, as the compound statement does, the label is only specified to allow the LEAVE statement to be used to terminate the iteration.
SQL/PSM YES Fully compliant.
