$ echo $var
"value1","value2","value3"

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

the result:
ERROR 1064 (42000) at line 1: You have an error in your SQL syntax;
check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the
right syntax to use near 'value1","value2","value3' at line 1

what do i have to do? please help me.
<<<<<<<<
If your "var" really has three pairs of double-quotes, with the double-quotes within the
single-quotes, you get that this
... SET(" "value1","value2","value3" ");
is passed to MySQL client, which is not valid.
