    Default Substitute variable in SQL statements

    Hi Team,
    I am facing in achieving this.
    I have a table which is having sql queries as rows in it. Those sql queries have certain variables in its filter condition. I am trying to execute those SQL using "Execute row SQL Script" but not able to replace those variables with user's input.
    And if I try to achieve it using "Execute SQL Script" then there is a challenge as the SQL script is present in a table.
    Please help me on this.

    Hi, Kritika09.

    I've tried to reproduce the scenario you described, as you can see in the image below:

    First, I get the values from instructions column. In the second step, I substitute variables for their values, which come from another variable. Finally I execute them.

    Here's how I've set up the 'Replace in String' step:

    As you can see, the variable in the search field is escaped.
