You can put two or more strings together using the concatenate operator.

database:scott

You can put two or more strings together using the concatenate operator. The SQL standard says you should use || but there are many differences between the main vendors.

CREATE TABLE bbc (name VARCHAR(10), region VARCHAR(10));
INSERT INTO bbc VALUES ('Poland', 'Europe');
INSERT INTO bbc VALUES ('Japan', 'Asia');
SELECT region & name
  FROM bbc
SELECT region + name
  FROM bbc
SELECT CONCAT(region, name)
  FROM bbc
SELECT region || name
  FROM bbc
