Connects the current client session to a keyspace.
USE keyspace_name | keyspace_name
A USE statement identifies the keyspace that contains the tables to query for the current client session. All subsequent operations on tables and indexes are in the context of the named keyspace, unless otherwise specified or until the client connection is terminated or another USE statement is issued.
To use a case-sensitive keyspace, enclose the keyspace name in double quotation marks.
