Looping through a table

OK, I am almost there.

I am trying to loop through a table and disply the headers (I got that).

Then I am trying to loop through and write the records (I got that).

What I cant seem to do it create a <cfswitch> where I check if the value is in a certain column heading and do something...  See below...

<table border=1>
      <tr bgcolor="#E8E8E8">
            <CFLOOP list="#AllListings.columnlist#" index="column_name">
            <td><CFOUTPUT>#column_name#</cfoutput></td>
            </cfloop>
      </tr>
      <cfoutput query="AllListings" startrow="#StartRow_AllListings#" maxrows="#MaxRows_AllListings#">
      <tr>
      <cfloop list="#AllListings.columnlist#" index="column_Name">
      <td><nobr>
            <cfset strColName="#Ucase(Trim(column_Name))#">
            <cfswitch expression="strColName">
            <cfcase value="Listing">
            <a href="Listing.asp?ID=#evaluate(column_name)#">#evaluate(column_name)#</a>
            </cfcase>
            <cfdefaultcase>
            <cfif Len(evaluate(column_name)) gt "200">
                  #left(evaluate(column_name),"100")#...
            <cfelse>
                  <cfif Len(evaluate(column_name)) lt "1">
                        &nbsp;
                  <cfelse>
                        #evaluate(column_name)#
                  </cfif>
            <cfif>
            </cfdefaultcase>
      </cfswitch>      
      </nobr></td>
</cfloop>
</tr>
</cfoutput>

PS, I am not trying to perform a <cfswitch> on the value of the column, I am trying to do it on the actual column name, and if it is in that column, then display a formated value.

I gues you forgot the # in cfswitch! now the value of the switch is "strColName" instead of the value of strColName you want

<cfswitch expression="#strColName#">

Let me know if this works

well first of all you'll want to put pounds around your cfswitch expression....
<cfswitch expression="#strColName#">

and I am not sure if case matters but if it does than if you are converting the strColName to uppercase then you should  
do <cfcase value="LISTING">

thats all I see off the top of my head...let us know if that works for you...

Yup, that was it.  I spilt up the points.  

Mause did answer first.  But you were both correct, i forgot the #.

Thanks.
