Can DB connect create an input with a dynamic database name


I have a application that produced a database with a current date everyday. (i.e today is 2019.12.20,then database name is DATA.20191220). I will to create a db input, the sql statement as follows:

select * from "DATA.20191220"."dbo"."PRINT_LOG"

If it's tomorrow, the sql statement should become as follows

    select * from "DATA.20191221"."dbo"."PRINT_LOG"

but I don't known how to connect a dynamic db name via DB connect App.
