How can we access tables through MySQL stored procedures?


We can access one or all the tables from the MySQL stored procedure. Following is an example in which we created a stored procedure that will accept the name of the table as a parameter and after invoking it, will produce the result set with all the details from the table.

Example

mysql> Delimiter //
mysql> Create procedure access(tablename varchar(30))
   -> BEGIN
   -> SET @X := CONCAT('Select * from',' ',tablename);
   -> Prepare statement from @X;
   -> Execute statement;
   -> END//
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.16 sec)

Now invoke the procedure with the table name, we need to access, as its parameter.

mysql> Delimiter ;

mysql> Call access('student_info');
