I need to be able to set the logID for a stored procedure. This works for selecting the correct log

SELECT l.logId
    FROM logs l WHERE l.details LIKE 'FCT%'

Open in new window

Now I need to take that logID and set it so that I can use it in a query such as



     SET @lgID = logID  SELECT * FROM logs l WHERE l.details LIKE 'FCT%';
     SET @s = CONCAT(             
     'select * from logs where logid =',@tbl);

      PREPARE stmt FROM @s;

         EXECUTE stmt;
        END //

You would use the SELECT...INTO syntax. Also, no need to prepare your Statement:

		SELECT logID INTO @lgID FROM logs l WHERE l.details LIKE 'FCT%' LIMIT 1;
		SELECT * FROM logs WHERE logid = @lgID;
	END //
