I have a query that returns the concatenation of several fields, such as:

SELECT Title + ' ' + Name + ' ' + Surname AS Client FROM Table1

The problem is that if any of the fields are blank, for example if the Title is blank, then the query does not return a value at all. Is it possible to alter the query so it returns whatever is available? So, for example, if only the name and the surname are filled in, then it would return "John Smith" for example, even though Title is null? Thanks
