See if this works for you:
' ' as 'Call'
, concat(FName, ' ', LName) as Name
, ' ' as 'Mar-6'
, ' ' as 'Mar-13'
, ' ' as 'Mar-20'
, ' ' as 'Mar-27'
Notice that there is a single blank space being returned for the Call,
Mar-6, Mar-13, Mar-20, Mar-27 columns. I tried returning null as well
as an empty string (i.e., '') but those did NOT give me column headings.
Hope this helps.

Subject: returning empty columns
This is probably going to sound like an odd request, but is there a way
to return empty columns in Mysql. For example a roll call sheet I want
to do a select of names from my table and then add a column for each of
the next 12 weeks. I tried this.....
SELECT `Call`, concat(FName, ' ', LName) as Name, 'Mar-6' ,'Mar-13',
Order BY LName, FName
The problem is it put that date on every row and I just want the names
to show up in the column header I know I could just write some php code
to print out a table with the columns but I have a handy php function
the prints the out put of a query in a table already so if I can find
the right query I don't have to change that code any.
