Reference a table with text value

I have many tables (sp lists). I need for user to choose a table variable. Drivers_Alabama, Drivers_Ohio etc

User selects from drop down a text input Drivers_Alabama or Drivers_Ohio etc.

 

And then in next drop I need to use this text value as a table name, so it would be dependant on that.

 

I can use TableName as table value, but how to convert text input or inputs to table name? For example strings "Table" & "Name" should convert to TableName table.

Why don't you have one table with a field for State?

Thank You for response. It is a hypotetical scenario, constructed in order to understand a problem.

How does this look?  The first dropdown creates a list of table names.  The second dropdown uses the selected table as the Items property after converting the selected text from the first dropdown to the actual datasource. _Screenshot 2020-12-13 121022.png
