Pass Parameters into Pre/Post SQL Statements

Right now in order to pass a parameter to pre/Post SQL we need to make a macro as a work around.

It would be really great if this was a native capability for the output tool so we don't have to replicate all the output too fields as macro inputs

yeah, I was surprised in the dynamic input I can only replace string in the query and NOT in pre or post SQL statements? Please add!

Agreed, this should be basic functionality. I need it too.

We also really need this functionality. Having a lot of macros to deal with parameters, something like ${PARAM} would be great!
