The cursor handle for the result set. The cursor handle is returned by DBCursorOpen or DBCursorOpenSQL.
The name of the column.
The name of a String tag that will receive detailed error messages, if errors occur during runtime.
Note: The tag name should be enclosed in quotes, as shown in the syntax diagram, or else the function will try to use the value of the tag.

This is an optional parameter.
