I want to compare two query variables like this:

Query1 has a name fild with values a, b, c, d.
Query2 is a subset of Quer1. It also has a name fild with values a, or b, or c, or d, or any combination of them.

I tried the following code:

<CFLOOP NAME="Query1">
      <CFLOOP NAME="Query2">
           <CFIF Compare(Query1.name, Query1.name) is 0>
                <br>A match found!!!<br>                
           </CFIF>    
      </CFLOOP>
</CFLOOP>

My problem is that Query1.name in the comparation statement is still a, it never changed to b, c, d. I tried to use Evaluate function, but it helpless.

Could You help me?

Thanks.

Try not using the query identifier in front of the variable..when you do, that only gives you the first record of the query..

<CFLOOP QUERY="Query1">
  <CFSET somevar = name>
      <CFLOOP QUERY="Query2">
           <CFIF Compare(somevar, name) is 0>
                <br>A match found!!!<br>                  
           </CFIF>      
      </CFLOOP>
</CFLOOP>

Thanks for your help.
I tried the similare way, and print out  somevar in outer loop and in inner loop, like this:

<CFLOOP QUERY="Query1">
        <CFSET somevar = name>
             <br>1. #somevar# <br>
        <CFLOOP QUERY="Query2">
            <br>2. #somevar# <br>
             <CFIF Compare(somevar, name) is 0>
                      <br>A match found!!!<br>                              </CFIF>      
         </CFLOOP>
 </CFLOOP>

1. is correct, but 2. remains the same.

2 would remain the same inside that second loop..your code should print:

1.a
2.a
a match is found!
2.a
2.a
2.a
1.b
2.b
2.b
a match is found!
2.b
2.b

etc..what output are you trying to get?

i'll test it on a server when i get a chance..
