    Hi all,
    I'm trying to write a select statement in a LOOP that would select from a variable instead of a table, for example:
    if i have a variable called my_var contains a value 'SCHOOL_LIST' (which is a table name in the database)

    how can I write a select statement so that the below would work:

    Select schoolname from my_var;

    (the variable is being populated via a cursor)

    plse help me ..Thanks

    look at EXECUTE IMMEDIATE to execute a dynamic sql string you create at run time, as indicated in your question.
