Is any way that we can use a variable with FROM clause in a SELECT statement in FORMS like if we write in SQL

select * from &table_name;

Then it ask for the table name and we change that value each time it is executed. Similarly we can use in REPORTS a lexical parameter to handle that situation.
But in FORMS when we write this statement
select count(*) into variable_name
FROM :TEXT_ITEM;
Then generates errors in compilation time. Please help me because it causes me much trouble.
