Newbie Question about dynamic table name references

I realize that using the TYPE declaration for variables makes their definitions more dynamic, like this:

myField tablename.name%TYPE;
myRow tablename%ROWTYPE;

But I also want to be able to change the name of the table in the code.

So I want to have "tablename" above refer to a VARIABLE that contains the name of a table, so I don't have to go changing the tablename throughout the code if the table name changes.

Is there a way to do this with PL/SQL?

For late binding you need to use dynamic SQL.


But it is better to use ref cursor or sys ref cursor for the purpose.
