Subject: How do I give a name to a result....

>Here's what I'd like to do:

>Sponsors LEFT JOIN donations ON
>Sponsors.sponsor_id = donations.sponsor_id
>ORDER BY last_name, first_name
>[as sponsor_donation(first_name, last_name, sponsor_id) #this is what's in
>my db text]
>The result of this query, is of course a table with three columns:
>first name, last name, and sponsor id. I'd like to store this in a
