Subj:   Variables as Table Name(s) in Stored Procedure
From:   Anomy Anom

Hi all,

As a part of a bigger Stored Procedure there are a couple of tables I'd like to run an Insert statement against. This Insert is 99% the same for each table, the differences being the Table Name and some condition in the Where clause.

So, I'm thinking that I can use the Procedure to run this Insert one time for each table, while using variables to swap in the differences. The Where clause swap I've got, but I'm running into trouble changing the Table Name for the Insert.

Here's a quick example, using tables TableOne, and TableTwo :

CREATE PROCEDURE TestStProc (IN tblName CHAR(8), IN criteria CHAR(1) )
  INSERT INTO :tblName
  SELECT * FROM some_table
  WHERE Code = :criteria;

I know it's wrong, because I get a compile time syntax error at the 'INTO:'. So, is there any way to use variables as Table Names? Should I use a different approach?
