yes u can, u need to declare your object to reflect the data u wish to populate from the database.
then u can use different methods to populate the object with the query result.
your question is quite generic, if u wish to get into details i'd suggest u post more practical requirements such as object structure, db type, query output etc.
Why not, just write a simple method to populate the object.
But why you have to do so?
In this case, I would suggest you create a class with 2 properties: "Id" and "Name".
For every row in your results from your database-query, you create a new instance of that class (= an object) and fill in the properties.

You can add all those objects to a generic List object, to make it easy to work with as a collection.

Hope this helps.
