ok, thanks for the clarification ...

I'll try to do it myself and see ... but also I would like to do it  
in a function/stored procedure, as will be more clear for me ...

and in this way I'll compare the speed difference ...

my initial approach is:

create temporary table test as SELECT  
oid,numero,data,concepte,deure,haver,(deure-haver) as saldo FROM  
assentaments WHERE clau_compte='0257000000002';

create a cursor,

loop for each row and update the saldo field

and return the select * from test

still working ...

regards and thanks again !
