Default Concatination

I have a SQL Query that returns 2 records.
Code:
[u]Crew</u>
A
B
I would like to be able to have the SQL return 1 record with the previous records concatinated like this:
Code:
[u]Crew</u>
AB
Does anybody know how to concatinate records on the fly with SQL?

Chris

There is no good reliable way to do what you want in an SQL query.

Do it in your client.

You could also write a stored procedure which turns your query into a cursor and concatenates the rows together procedurally.
