In just plain SQL this may be very difficult. Are you using some (scripting) language too?

yes i am using php

add connection and query here as usual

    if (mysql_num_rows($result) > 0) { 
    echo "<table>"; 
         echo "<thead>";

     echo "<th>ImageURL</th>";
         echo "<th>caption</th>";
         echo "<th>template</th>";
      while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($query)) { 
        echo "<tr>";
          echo"<td>$row['col1']</td> <td>{$row['col2']}</td><td>{$row['col3']}</td>";

    echo "</table>";
