DECLARE Keyword

DECLARE Keyword

Question:
What is the function of the DECLARE keyword in an SQL program? I am aware you can DECLARE cursors in embedded SQL.

Are there any other instances where DECLARE is used in SQL?

Answer:
In general, the DECLARE keyword works as a placeholder to reserve space in memory for variables that will be used or referenced in a procedure or batch.
