Maybe its just your example, but what you're asking for is for all rows where 
the field name matches the string "a*b". That is, Name is a string.

Is that really what you are trying to do, or
did you mean can you prepare a statement like
"SELECT * FROM test WHERE name = ?"
then when you execute it, you pass in your variable...

Is that what you wanted?
