Hey there,

I'm doing some initial review of data in SQL.  Things like:

SELECT COUNT(DISTINCT mycolmnname) FROM mytable
SELECT COUNT (mycolumnname) FROM mytable
SELECT TOP 10 (mycolumnname) FROM mytable

I've got a ton of tables and columns to do this with so I thought I could use a variable in my query rather than replacing the column name every time.  

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
