Hi Rick,

thanks for correcting me. (numeric order)

I thought he just wants to select one col. (SELECT "3rd column" FROM table
... )

I didn't read your answer because it was not in the same thread (reading the
with MS Outlook Express), because the subject-line changed. Can you suggest
a newsreader which can manage this? I assume this is the wrong place to ask,
if you don't want to answer, please tell me where to find the answer.
(I didn't find it in any FAQs.) Sorry for asking such a stupid question.
