An update, with a cursor that is based on a view, can fail to update a row if the view is based on a join of one or more tables. ODBC applications may encounter a SQL_SUCCESS_WITH_INFO message "Cursor operation conflict" in this situation because no rows were affected by the cursor update.
If you are using an ANSI T-SQL based cursor, an UPDATE statement in this scenario fails with the following error:
Msg 16947, Level 16, State 1
No rows were updated or deleted.
Define the cursor with the query on which the view is defined.
