I have a select and want to bring back one field as the combination of 2 fields....

Something like:

SELECT a.reportedBy AS 'user',
b.fName,
b.lName

FROM tblReports a,
tblUsers b

WHERE a.reportedBy = b.userId

Now, in the code behind, I can add fname and lname but it would be more efficient to do it in the sql.

Something like

a.reportedBy AS 'user' (user = b.fname + ' ' + b.lname)

Can't find the syntax for this one.

Thanks,

Zath

SELECT a.reportedBy      AS [user],
       b.fName + b.lName AS [fullname]
FROM tblReports a INNER JOIN tblUsers b
ON   a.reportedBy = b.userId
