Fetching the Data from Row 1 (SQL)

This code requires the samples SQL database. The file customer.dbtex is created using:
datatooltk --output customer.dbtex --sqldb samples --sqluser sampleuser --sql "SELECT * FROM people WHERE surname='Parrot'"
Alternatively you can use datatooltk-gui to import the data and save it to a file called customer.dbtex.
\documentclass[captions=tableheading]{scrartcl}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

\usepackage{datatool}

\DTLloaddbtex{\people}{customer.dbtex}

\begin{document}

\DTLassign{\people}{1}{%
  \Surname=surname,%
  \Title=title,%
  \AddressI=address1,%
  \AddressII=address2,%
  \Town=town,%
  \County=county,%
  \Postcode=postcode%
}

\begin{tabular}{l}
\Title\ \Surname\\
\AddressI\\
\AddressII\\
\Town\\
\County\\
\Postcode
\end{tabular}

\end{document}
