MySQL PREPARE Statements

From WikiOD

Syntax[edit | edit source]

  • PREPARE stmt_name FROM preparable_stmt
  • EXECUTE stmt_name [USING @var_name [, @var_name] ...]

PREPARE, EXECUTE and DEALLOCATE PREPARE Statements[edit | edit source]

PREPARE prepares a statement for execution

EXECUTE executes a prepared statement

DEALLOCATE PREPARE releases a prepared statement

SET @s = 'SELECT SQRT(POW(?,2) + POW(?,2)) AS hypotenuse';
PREPARE stmt2 FROM @s;
SET @a = 6;
SET @b = 8;
EXECUTE stmt2 USING @a, @b;


| hypotenuse |
|         10 |




  • You must use @variables, not DECLAREd variables for FROM @s
  • A primary use for Prepare, etc, is to 'construct' a query for situations where binding will not work, such as inserting the table name.

Alter table with add column[edit | edit source]

SET v_column_definition := CONCAT(
  ,' ',v_column_type
  ,' ',v_column_options 

SET @stmt := CONCAT('ALTER TABLE ADD COLUMN ', v_column_definition);

PREPARE stmt FROM @stmt;

Construct and execute[edit | edit source]

(This is a request for a good example that shows how to construct a SELECT using CONCAT, then prepare+execute it. Please emphasize the use of @variables versus DECLAREd variables -- it makes a big difference, and it is something that novices (include myself) stumble over.)
