Returns an associative array containing the next result-set row of a query. Each array entry corresponds to a column of the row. This function is typically called in a loop until it returns FALSE, indicating no more rows exist.

Calling oci_fetch_assoc() is identical to calling oci_fetch_array() with OCI_ASSOC + OCI_RETURN_NULLS.



A valid OCI8 statement identifier created by oci_parse() and executed by oci_execute(), or a REF CURSOR statement identifier.

Return Values

Returns an associative array. If there are no more rows in the statement then FALSE is returned.
