Using Parameter Queries
A Parameter query is actually a type of Select query. For example, suppose your company has 5,000
employees and you want to query the database to find the same kind of information again and again, but about
different employees each time. For example, you might want to query the database to find out how many hours
a particular employee has worked. You could run a query that you created and stored previously, but run it
only for a particular employee.
