View as plain text  
are you trying to get the value of var encapsulated with  ' ' marks? 
Typical shell expansion while within " " will output the literal:

var=10
echo "'$var'"
'10'


Have you tried removing the single quotes?  The shell can be funny with ' and "

What is the result if you echo that line instead of running it?  ie:

echo mysql -u $user -p${password} --skip-column-names -e 'ALTER TABLE
' $table' MODIFY '$kolom' SET(" '$var' ");' $database ;

I'm not clear exactly what the text is of the command you are trying to run.
