Experts,

I'm writing a SQL select statement for a report and have a few requirements that I must meet.

I need to select from my orders table the First and Last name of the user

Table: Orders
Column: FirstName
Column: LastName

BUT I need to select them as one column in the result set, "Name". So my select would give me something like,

::Name::
FirstName + " " + LastName

Is this possible? If so, how would I form the SQL?

Thanks so much for your help!

unless you use firebird, than it would be

select FirstName || ' ' || LastName as Full_Name from orders
