add the output of a query to a variable to be used in another query

I would like to use the result of a query in another query. How do I redirect/add the output to another variable?

PHP Code:
$result odbc_exec($connect$query);
while (
$row odbc_fetch_array($result)) {
This will output hostnames:

host1 host2 host3

I would like to add the output to the variable $hosts something like this:

$hosts = "host1,host2,host3"

I plan to use $host in another query further down in the script.

thanks & regards
