You might try something along the lines of: (completely untested)

<dtml-let zsql_name="my_query()[0]">
<dtml-in "_[zsql_name]()">


but I think you will be better off getting your result from a python
script that can find the correct query and return it. You should
also think about using ZPT instead of dtml.

And you should definitely be asking this question on the zope
mailing list:  zope at
