Is it possible to put a calculation as a field in a mysql database. For example if I wanted column3 to be the sum of the values of column 1 and column 2, is that possible?

Is there a syntax for doing that kind of thing in a mysql record?

Not that I am aware. But the bigger question is why would you want to do such a thing? It is redundant data since it can be calculated at any given time during data retrieval.
