i dont know much about VBscript myself, but i would think it more of a client-side scripting language. Since CFquery tag is something that is processed at the server side, the VBscript code wont get run until it reaches the client browser

VBscript is working on client side. CF - on server. You cannot send data inside the same page without refreshing this page.

If you want to send values to another page it will be (in JavaScript) like

function SendVar(a,b){

location="newpage.cfm?FirstVar=" + a + "SecondVar=" + b
}


Sorry about JavaScript, but at VBscript it will be similar.
