Default placeholder in query


I need your help; In the query I am trying to pass the input from drop down box as

sqlcmd="select * from abc where xyz='dropdownlist1.selecteditem'"

but I am sure that, in this case "dropdownlist1.selecteditem" will be considered as plain string, so wanted to pass it in placeholder.

How can I achive this? Please help.
