I have a field name called 1(one) from a table called users.  It is a number.  When I output it, it generates an error.  Is there a way round this?

Code :

<cfquery name="test" datasource="test">
select 1
from users
</cfquery>

*<cfoutput query="test">#1#</cfoutput>???

This part with the asterix(*) generates an error.

Hi,

in the SQL command "select 1 from users" the 1 is interpreted as a value not as a field name.
You have to specify a field name.

Try to use this command:
Select 1 as fieldname from users

<cfOutput query="test">#fieldname#</cfOutput>

Bye
Patrik
