This is usually done in the fetch statement and not in the open one.
EXEC SQL FETCH 100 myCursor INTO :myInts;

EXEC SQL DEFINE/IFDEF/...

I think it would be much easier to port from ecpg to cpre than what I am doing, because a lot of the non-standard options that are available used/forced in cpre. So thanks for all the work you guys have done.
Nice to hear that. :-)
