JKevin,
Thanks for ur Suggestion, but this won't solve my problem.

I think u have interpreted it wrongly.
As i have to define <cfinput...
in the form page with dynamic names for the text fields as it is used in the Query output & read them in action page.

I hope i'm clear now.

Two possible scenarios:

If you can generate the same query on the action page u can re-generate the names there.

In your first page make the input field names a little more predictable for example u can have

<cfinput type="text" name="text_#id#">

Now on the action page u loop through the FORM collection and look for all variable names matching "text_". That way u can achieve it.

Hope this helps.

Soni.

Oh, I get it now.

I've done this before in two ways.  

Either with JavaScript which generates the form using variables supplied by the CF server (this is the more complicated solution, but more flexible)

OR

Totally with CF using lists.  Create a list (dynamic of course).  Each item in the list is a new text field name.
To retrieve the value of the form field, loop over the list. This is similar to Soni's solution except it stores the filed names in an explicit list that you can manipulate more easily than the FORMS collection. (ie you don't need to search the collection for specific types of filed names)
the downside is that you have to create and manage the list.
