Generic access to different queries to the same table

I have an mySQL database which can have up to 6 queries on a given table.

I would like to access them with a generic procedure without an if then else construct as the processing on the queries will be the same for all 6.  I need to be
able to reference the queries individually and display them simultaneously.  Right now I have

procedure ProcessQuery(CodeType)

if CodeType = "AAA" then
   begin
   queryAAA.
   queryAAA.
   queryAAA.
   end
else
if CodeType = "BBB" then
   begin
   queryBBB.
   queryBBB.
   queryBBB.
   end;

what I would like to do is something like

procedure ProcessQuery(CodeType)
begin
  queryCodeType.
  queryCodeType.
  queryCodeType.
end;

Can I do it and How Would I do it if I can?

Something like...

Procedure execute(codetype:string);
begin
TQuery(FindComponent('query'+CodeType)).Active:=false;
TQuery(FindComponent('query'+CodeType)).Active:=true;
end;

(it's from the head... I do not have delphi around me to check the exact syntax but I think it's ok)

how about something like this:

procedure TForm1.ProcessQuery(aQuery: TQuery);
begin
  //do your stuff here...
  with aQuery do
  begin
    aQuery.Open;
    while not(aQuery.Eof) do
    begin
      // do something
      Next;
    end;
  end;
end;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  ProcessQuery(queryBBB);
  ProcessQuery(queryAAA);
end;

or maybe even add a list property to your form/datamodule like:

  public
    QueryList: TList;

and do this on create:

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
  QueryList := TList.Create;
  QueryList.Add(queryAAA);
  QueryList.Add(queryBBB);
end;

and to process:

procedure TForm1.Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  i: integer;
begin
  for i:= 0 to QueryList.Count - 1 do
    ProcessQuery(QueryList[i]);
end;

and let's not forget to free the list

procedure TForm1.FormDestroy(Sender: TObject);
begin
  FreeAndNil(QueryList);
end;
