I have a Table in which two of the columns are "First Name" and "Last Name".

On the same page I have a Drop Down List which you can select a person from the database, but I want the two fields, "First Name" and "Last Name" to be concatenated together into just "Full Name" that shows in the Drop Down List.

Is there anyway to do this?
