The Update method returns an update cursor that can be used to update or delete rows. It offers somewhat faster performance than multiple calls to Store or Delete on row objects fetched using a non-recycling search cursor for tables storing simple rows and simple features. There is no difference in performance for complex objects and features.

When using cursors within an edit session, they should always be scoped to edit operations. In other words, a cursor should be created after an edit operation has begun and should not be used once that edit operation has been stopped or aborted.
