Why would $tablename be a number?  Is this really what you want?  Maybe you
really wanted to check the length?

if ( length($tablename) > 1 )

....Or a little better

if ( length($tablename) )

....Or better yet

if ( $tablename )

Here's the code:

if ( $tablename > 1){
 
$sth = $dbh->prepare("SELECT * from $tablename") || die "3: " .
$dbh->errstr;
$sth->execute();
 
while (my @data = $sth->fetchrow_array){
        ...........
        ..........


Sorry about that
