ok this seems easy enough, but i havent been able to find a solution.

i want to make a query from the DUAL table that returns two rows of data like this:

DUAL
-----
N
Y


i know that "select 'N' from dual" can give you 1 row, but i want both. and no, i do not want to create a dummy table. i want this to all be on the fly.
