Dreamweaver ASP and MSSQL---  multiple query problem

When I run the following query in  the Query Analyzer I get correct values

SELECT dbo.tutee.idratuteeid,dbo.tutee.firstname,dbo.tutee.lastname,dbo.tutee.mi,dbo.tutee.gradelevel,dbo.tutee.room,dbo.tutee.elemteacherid,dbo.elemteacher.elemteacherid,dbo.elemteacher.firstname,dbo.elemteacher.lastname
FROM dbo.tutee, dbo.elemteacher
WHERE dbo.elemteacher.elemteacherid=dbo.tutee.elemteacherid

 AND dbo.tutee.teachercoordid =101

When Dreamweaver's ASP repeated regions behavior codes it like this..


The firstname and lastname values come from the same table which is BAD!!!
What can I add to the Dreamweaver ASP code  to call from the correct tables.
Since I am a dumb dumb...I tried

and got a an error.

Obviously one of the problems is that the column names in the separate tables are the same...firstname, lastname...
1. Should I have named the differently?
2.  Is there a way for Dreamwever's ASP to differentiate between dbo.elemteacher.lastname and dbo.tutee.lastname

you need to give the cols distinct aliases in the SQL , then you can refere to them properly in your ASP by their aliases :

          dbo.tutee.idratuteeid AS idratuteeid,
      dbo.tutee.firstname AS tutee_fisttname,
      dbo.tutee.lastname AS tutee_lastname,
      dbo.tutee.mi as tutee_mi,
      dbo.tutee.gradelevel as gradelevel,
      dbo.tutee.room as room,
      dbo.tutee.elemteacherid as tutee_elemteacherid,
      dbo.elemteacher.elemteacherid as teacher_elemteacherid,
      dbo.elemteacher.firstname as teacher_firstname,
      dbo.elemteacher.lastname as teacher_lastname
FROM dbo.tutee, dbo.elemteacher
WHERE dbo.elemteacher.elemteacherid=dbo.tutee.elemteacherid
 AND dbo.tutee.teachercoordid =101
