> Hi all,
> I'm just experimenting with schema usage. I'm going to use it as a fake 'multi-database' system. Is Postgresql support coding schema name using string variable so I can pass it with parameter? I'm give u an example:
> I have schema: D200401,D200402.D200403,D200404, etc.
> I've set my user just like the schema name, so who login with D200401 will be using D200401 schema. When someone using D200401 schema, they sometime want to access another schema, so in my thought I can use variable like this:
> sPointer='D200403'
> select * from sPointer.myTable -- Question: How to write it to work properly?

SET search_path to D200401 ;
SET search_path to D200402 ; 
should do the job.
