"pythagorean theorem question"

I understand that A2+B2=C2 from the geometry classes I took in high school. My question is if there is a whole number that can be used for both A and B where the result for C will be a whole number. I am not talking about an equation like 3squared + 4squared = 5squared. I am interested in a number where A and B are the same whole number and C is a whole number using this equation. I tried to find this number many years ago using programs I wrote in QBasic but never had any luck. Does this number exist or am I just chasing a rainbow?
