Hello Experts,

I have the Select query below, the issue I have is that I want to combine C.JBCAFirstName and C.JBACAName into one output - JBCName, however as the JBACAFirstName was a new addition to the table, there will often be senarios whereby JBACAFirstName is NULL, so in that instance I want to show just the value of JBACAName, rather than -
NULL Garry etc

Possible? Please help - thanks
Select
AP.JBAPCoveringLetter,
CONVERT(CHAR(11),AP.JBAPDate,106) AS JBAPDate,
C.JBCAFirstName,
C.JBACAName,
AD.JBATitle,
AD.JBAReference,
E.JBEName,
S.JBSURLShort
From dbo.JBApplication AP
inner join dbo.JBAdvert AD on AP.JBAPAdvertID = AD.JBAID
inner join dbo.JBEmployee E on AP.JBAPEmployeeID = E.JBEID
inner join dbo.JBACandidate C on AP.JBAPCandidateID = C.JBACAID
inner join dbo.JBSite S on AP.JBAPSiteID = S.JBSSiteID
Where AP.JBAPID = 13200
