this question is a bit vague, as the issue is: how is the user finally running the sql?
ms sql management studio?
some home-grown app (which programming language)?
using a .sql file?
somehow else?

I need to save a sql query in database which first tries to  execute before it saves in database.
There are some values in query which will be user input later.
Example query is :
select * from Personal_Details a
inner join DEATH_BENEFIT b on
a.REFNO=b.REFNO

inner join PENSIONER_DETAIL c on
c.REFNO=a.REFNO

inner join TRANSFER_OUT_HISTORY d on
d.REFNO=a.REFNO

where (a.CURRStatus in ('Active','PreservedPensioner','Pensioner','Widow','Child'))
or (a.CURRStatus = 'No Liability'
and ((a.Dateleft > dateadd(y,17/06/2011,-1)) or  (b.dbdate > dateadd(y,17/06/2011,-1))  
or (c.pdpencomm  > dateadd(y,17/06/2011,-1)) or (d.topaid > dateadd(y,17/06/2011,-1))))

bold are the user input.
For the timebeing just need to replace it with user input.

Do you mean you want the person running the script (in Management Studio or wherever) to be prompted for parameters at runtime, or just want to know how to use variables?

OK

Declare @RefDate datetime

Set @RefDate = '17/06/2011'

Select *
From Personal_Details a
Inner Join DEATH_BENEFIT b  On a.REFNO=b.REFNO
Inner Join PENSIONER_DETAIL c On c.REFNO=a.REFNO
Inner Join TRANSFER_OUT_HISTORY d On d.REFNO=a.REFNO
Where (a.CURRStatus In ('Active','PreservedPensioner','Pensioner','Widow','Child'))
Or (a.CURRStatus = 'No Liability' And ((a.Dateleft > dateadd(y, @RefDate, -1))
    Or  (b.dbdate > dateadd(y, @RefDate, -1))  
    Or (c.pdpencomm  > dateadd(y, @RefDate, -1)) Or (d.topaid > dateadd(y, @RefDate, -1)))
)
