This is a normal behavior for Interbase or Firebird as per SQL-92
standard. I use a stored procedure to concatenate fields, when I know that
they are the same fields all the time.

If you don't want to use stored procedures, then I would suggest that you
use calculated fields to concatenate the strings. The calculated fields
are handled by the application, by the event OnCalcFields.

These are two solutions that can be used.
