I'd assumed your data was coming from spreadsheets, in which case Load Data Infile from .csv files offers best bulk insert performance.

Incorrect. Creating a glut of identically structured tables is not usually sound or efficient design.

DECLARE is never used with @ variables ie user variables.

Read the excellent manual regarding declared variables, starting with Declaring variables is supported only in stored routines.

PREPARE needs a user var.
