    Quite easy actually.

    data: tmp type string,
          tmp1 type string.
    
    CONCATENATE '''' 'xyz' '''' INTO tmp.
    CONCATENATE '''' 'xyz' '''' INTO tmp1.
    
    CONCATENATE
      'col1'
      '='
      tmp
      'AND'
      'col2'
      '='
      tmp1
    INTO tmp SEPARATED BY SPACE.
    
    Select *
    From Table
    Into wa
    Where (tmp)
    
    

    You can of course do the string stuff differently but that's how you do it.

    select * from TableInto wa
    Where (model->wherestring)
    

    That might work using the directly not sure but be sure you format your where string correctly with the quotes and all.
