I think what I want to do is possible.  I have the following result set from a query and want to be able to create a comma separated list for each field's result set.

Field1   Field2   Field3
--------------------------
Data1   Name1  Fr
Data2   Name2  Fr

And the desired result is a variable that contains each field's data is a comma separated list

$Field1Var = Data1, Data2
$Field2Var = Name1, Name2
$Field3Var = Fr

Can anyone help me with this?  Thanks!

      $Field2Var = "";
      $Field3Var = "";
      
      $query = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM tablename");
      
      $i = $k = $j = 0;
      
      while($row = mysql_fetch_object($query)) {
      
            if(!strstr($Field1Var,$row->Field1)) {
            
                  $Field1Var .= ($i==0?$row->Field1:", ".$row->Field1);
            
                  $i++;
            }
            
            if(!strstr($Field2Var,$row->Field2)) {
