Positioning-action specifies the position in the response from which the Fetch is to be performed.

One of the following values may be set before calling the Fetch function:
|0||fetch the next parcel. This is the default.|
|1||fetch the first parcel in the row number, specified by Positioning-value for the statement and Positioning-statement-number.|
|2||fetch bytes in the Binary Large Object (BLOB), beginning at the byte offset. Specified by Positioning-value for the statement and Positioning-statement-number. This may be done only if a single BLOB was selected using a locator.|
|3||fetch characters in the Character Large Object (CLOB), beginning at the character offset. Specified by Positioning-value for the statement and Positioning-statement-number. This may be done only if a single CLOB was selected using a locator.|
Use of this option requires that Keep-response=P be specified when initiating the request.
Use of this setting does not require use of Change-option. That is, Positioning-action overrides Change-option setting.
