Imaging you have an basic statment
SELECT  *  FROM   post_id WHERE  wp_postmeta =2;
I know the
SET @variable. command but I want to set the whole statment do I have to use functions ?
or is there a way (which I tried) such as:

SET @variable = (SELECT  *  FROM   post_id WHERE  wp_postmeta =2);
then I can run the command using
SELECT @variable.
