SQL Querys

Hi All

Is it possible in sql to take 3 query and return only one table?

E.g. I want one table return from a query

SELECT [DisplayName],[Email]
  FROM [contacts]
  where [Email] is not null

      SELECT [DisplayName],[Email1]
  FROM [contacts]
  where [Email1] is not null

  SELECT [DisplayName],[Email2]
  FROM .[contacts]
  where [Email2] is not null

At the moment 3 tables are return how do I merge these in to one?

Use UNION :

SELECT [DisplayName],[Email]
  FROM [contacts]
  where [Email] is not null 
UNION
      SELECT [DisplayName],[Email1]
  FROM [contacts]
  where [Email1] is not null 
UNION
  SELECT [DisplayName],[Email2]
  FROM .[contacts]
  where [Email2] is not null
