SELECT AS

SELECT AS

(OP)
There are 2 tables...one table contains the field descriptions and another contains the values:

SELECT CSOPTFH.FDESC
FROM CSOPTFH
WHERE (((CSOPTFH.OPTFIELD)="105"));

will give me the column HEADING

and

SELECT CSOPTFD.VDESC
FROM CSOPTFD
WHERE (((CSOPTFD.OPTFIELD)="105"));

will give me the values
Can I combine both so that the 1st select can be the column HEADING for the 2nd selct statement ?

RE: SELECT AS

Something like this should work:
SELECT CSOPTFH.FDESC as "Heading", CSOPTFD.VDESC as "Value"
FROM CSOPTFH, CSOPTFD
WHERE CSOPTFH.OPTFIELD = '105' and CSOPTFD.OPTFIELD = '105'

Thanks Mirtheil,
I must have explained wrong.....

I guess this will explain better:

SELECT CSOPTFD.VDESC AS[SELECT CSOPTFH.FDESC
FROM CSOPTFH
WHERE (((CSOPTFH.OPTFIELD)="105"));
]
FROM CSOPTFD
WHERE (((CSOPTFD.OPTFIELD)="105"));

RE: SELECT AS

No, I don't think that's possible.  
You might be able to write a stored procedure and store the output of the first query into a variable and then use the variable as the column name in the second query.  I haven't tried it though.
