mysql> select * from users where id=@id;

mysql> update users set name='John' where id=@id;

You can also use these user variables in prepared statements. Here is an example where have created a user variable @query that uses another user variable @tblname.

mysql> SET @tblName = 'Users';
mysql> SET @query = CONCAT('Select * FROM ', @tblName, ' LIMIT 10');
mysql> PREPARE stmt FROM @query;
mysql> EXECUTE stmt;
mysql> DEALLOCATE PREPARE stmt;

You can also save these statements in query.sql script.

SET @tblName = 'Users';
SET @query = CONCAT('Select * FROM ', @tblName, ' LIMIT 10');

EXECUTE stmt;
DEALLOCATE PREPARE stmt;
