Enable sqlcmd mode in SQL Server Management Studio as described in following image.

Now in query editor type following SQL.

:SETVAR DatabaseName “SBOPRODIR”

:SETVAR SchemaName “dbo”

:SETVAR TableName “OITM”

USE $(DatabaseName);

SELECT * FROM $(SchemaName).$(TableName);

Note that I have set the value of the database, schema and table as a sqlcmd variable and I am executing the query using the same parameters.

SQLCMD is a relatively simple language to master and it also aids in doing various tasks easily.
