Select Statment question

I have a question and I can't figure out how to do it.

I have a select statment :
SELECT table1.* AS table1.*, table2.* AS table2.* FROM table1, table2

this does not work...for me at least...I'm trying to name my columns
tablename.field name....any help would be appreciated, thanks

You can't use wildcards within column aliases in SQL. You'll have to
name every column individually (which I recommend anyway, for other

Also, column aliases must be quoted if they contain punctuation (or
spaces, etc.).

For example:

SELECT table1.field1 AS 'table1.field1' ,
table1.field2 AS 'table1.field2' ,
table2.field1 AS 'table2.field1' ,
table2.field2 AS 'table2.field2'
FROM table1, table2
