if ( $tablename > 1) is going to evaluate to false since the numeric value
of any string is 1.
Try:
if ($tablename)
or:
if (defined($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
