Hi Folks,

i am up against a problem involving variable names with hyphens.  unfortunately it is not as simple as redefining the variables without hyphens because these come out of active directory LDAP queries.

the basic script is like:

=========================================================
<cfoutput>
<cfset attributes = "dn,E-mail-Addresses">

<CFLDAP NAME="ListAccounts"
    SERVER="#server#"
    PORT="389"
    USERNAME="#NT_DOM#\Administrator"
    PASSWORD="#passwd#"
    ACTION="query"
    START="CN=Recipients,dc=company,dc=com"
    SCOPE="OneLevel"
    ATTRIBUTES="#Attributes#"
    TIMEOUT="320"
    >

found #listaccounts.recordcount# entries.

<p>List of Entries:<br>
<table>
<tr>
<cfloop list="#attributes#" index="att">
<td>#att#</td>
</cfloop>
</tr>
<cfloop query=listaccounts>

<tr>
<cfloop list="#attributes#" index="att">
<td>#evaluate("listaccounts.#att#")#</td>
</cfloop>
</tr>

</cfloop>
</table>

</cfoutput>
=========================================================

which produces the quite predictable error:

=========================================================
An error has occurred while processing the expression:

listaccounts.E-Mail-Addresses

Error resolving parameter LISTACCOUNTS.E
=========================================================

anyone aware of a work-around to this problem?

cheers.

You can normally get around this by using array notation instead of dot notation to access the variable.

i.e. #evaluate("listaccounts.#att#")# can be rewritten as #listaccounts['att'][listaccounts.currentrow]# when looping through the query.

Thanks,

specifically, this diod the trick:

<td>#listaccounts['#att#'][listaccounts.currentrow]#</td>

Cheers.
