[DB-SIG] How can I retrieve single records in a specific order?

I'm writing a python application which will retrieve thousands of records from
a MySQL database. I'm having trouble getting sequential records in the order
I want, and was hoping someone could offer suggestions of how to proceed.
Here is the python code I've gotten so far....
Database=MySQLdb.connect(db = Database, user = DatabaseUser, passwd =
DatabasePassword, host = localhost)
DatabaseCursor = Database.cursor()
DatabaseCursor.execute("SELECT * FROM table1 ORDER BY field1")
RecordData = DatabaseCursor.fetchone()
You MySQL gurus can probably spot that I will receive a single record into
"RecordData", and every time I run the routine, I will get the exact same
record (in this case, the first record in the database table1 that is sorted
My Question: But how can I get a single record in this sort order, and then
retrieve the next record in this same sort order?
