   I have an Access database that I have bound through an ADO control to a DataList box.  I'm trying to display two of the columns in this list box with a dash in between them.  The code to display just one of the columns is:
 
datalist1.listfield = "Country"
 
The "Country" is one of the column names in this table and when executed, it lists the elements of that column.  Do you have any suggestions as to how I can simply list the elements of two columns with a dash in between them?

It took me a while to figure out that I needed to code a SQL statement and since I didn't have a SQL book that dealt with VB, it took me a bit longer to get the correct syntax.  Thank you so very much for your help!!
