Set Sqlstring = "select * from " concat library concat "/filename where key = ?"
Prepare s1 for sqlstring
Declare c1 cursor for s1
Open c1 using (somevariable)

Something along those lines.

Subject: Another SQL-newbie UDF question: qualifying with a library passed as a variable

Situation: I have a UDF that, because it's using unqualified filenames
on SELECTs, can get confused about where to go for its data, if the
library list is the list bit funky.

But the target library is not known at creation time.

I'd like to pass the library as a parameter. But is there a way to
qualify the filename on a SELECT, using a variable (in this case, a
parameter) as the library name?
