For more details, pls have a look into the below code:

I have 3 drop down button and the corresponding query is given below :

Once I select Cob(1) and cUprFSACode (2) from the drop down button, The value of thired (cDBFN) values
is always which are available under cUprFSACode.

Pls see the line comments for where the problem is.




<!--- QUERY 1 --->

<CFQUERY NAME="SelCob" DATASOURCE="#CSybDataSource#" USERNAME=#CSybUsername# PASSWORD=#CSybPassword#>
     SELECT distinct convert(char,dBusinessDate,111) 'Cob'
     FROM     tblPastDate
     order by dBusinessDate desc
</CFQUERY>

<!--- QUERY 2 --->

<CFQUERY NAME="SelAcct" DATASOURCE="#CSybDataSource#" USERNAME=#CSybUsername# PASSWORD=#CSybPassword#>
SELECT      distinct cUprFSACode
FROM     tblFSAAcctNameJa
ORDER BY cUprFSACode
</CFQUERY>

<!--- QUERY 3 --->

<CFQUERY NAME="SelDBFN" DATASOURCE="#CSybDataSource#" USERNAME=#CSybUsername# PASSWORD=#CSybPassword#>
SELECT      distinct cDBFN
FROM     tblDBFN
where cDBFN != ' '
and cAcct_Aum = "#----------#"      ==> I need to specify the 'cUprFSACode' variable here.
                         PS : This variable should come after user select the
                                          second drop down botton.
order by cDBFN asc
</CFQUERY>

You have to reload the entire form (easiest way) or Create Javascript Arrays (if your query doesn't contains lot of values). Here's the code for the 1st solution :

<!--- QUERY 1 --->

<CFQUERY NAME="SelCob" DATASOURCE="#CSybDataSource#" USERNAME=#CSybUsername# PASSWORD=#CSybPassword#>
    SELECT distinct convert(char,dBusinessDate,111) 'Cob'
    FROM     tblPastDate
    order by dBusinessDate desc
</CFQUERY>

<!--- QUERY 2 --->

<CFQUERY NAME="SelAcct" DATASOURCE="#CSybDataSource#" USERNAME=#CSybUsername# PASSWORD=#CSybPassword#>
SELECT      distinct cUprFSACode
FROM     tblFSAAcctNameJa
ORDER BY cUprFSACode
</CFQUERY>

<CFIF (IsDefined("Form.AcctList")) AND (Form.AcctList IS NOT "")>
<!--- QUERY 3 --->

<CFQUERY NAME="SelDBFN" DATASOURCE="#CSybDataSource#" USERNAME=#CSybUsername# PASSWORD=#CSybPassword#>
SELECT      distinct cDBFN
FROM     tblDBFN
where cDBFN != ' '
and cAcct_Aum = "#Form.AcctList#"    
order by cDBFN asc
</CFQUERY>

</CFIF>
