Loop with multiple delimited variables


i need a portion in a audit logging shell script where i have to loop thru multiple variables.
I need some help in accomplishing this. i have 3 variables

the variables will have variables number of values but same length.(3 in this case )

i need to be able to loop thru values in var1 and get the values of all the variables to execute some commands.

while IFS=',' read var1 var2 var2
  echo "$var1 1 st value   $var2   first value   $var3 first value"

so for 1 st loop for var1 1 i need to use 1 ,a and 0 in a insert script to some tables. so they need to avaliable in 3 different variables so i can do
insert into table values ($var1, $var2, $var3)

in this case i will get
insert into table (1,'a',0)
insert into table (23,'ab',0)
insert into table 234,'xyz',0)

thanks in advance for some help

A Unix shell repeatedly prints a prompt, waits for a command line on stdin, and then carries out some action, as directed by the contents of the command line.

SYSSTAT(5)							Linux User's Manual							SYSSTAT(5)

sysstat - sysstat configuration file. DESCRIPTION
This file is read by sa1(8) and sa2(8) shell scripts from the sysstat's set of tools. It consists of a sequence of shell variable assign- ments used to configure sysstat logging. The variables and their meanings are: HISTORY The number of days during which a daily data file or a report should be kept. Data files or reports older than this number of days will be removed by the sa2(8) shell script. COMPRESSAFTER Number of days after which daily data files are to be compressed, either by gzip or bzip2. SADC_OPTIONS Options that should be passed to sadc(8). With these options (see sadc(8) manual page), you can select some additional data which are going to be saved in daily data files. These options are used only when a new data file is created. They will be ignored with an already existing one. FILES
