zsh, bash and ksh93 have brace expansion:

% printf "select count(1) from tfg%d;\n" {1..10}
select count(1) from tfg1;
select count(1) from tfg2;
select count(1) from tfg3;
select count(1) from tfg4;
select count(1) from tfg5;
select count(1) from tfg6;
select count(1) from tfg7;
select count(1) from tfg8;
select count(1) from tfg9;
select count(1) from tfg10;
