No last comma

With the code below I need it changed to not output a comma when it is done with all SubCatagories of a TopCatagory:

 <CFOUTPUT query="q_LinkCatagories">
  <CFIF IsDefined("LastTopCatagory")>
   <CFIF TopCatagory neq LastTopCatagory>); listB.addOptions("#TopCatagory#",</CFIF>
   "#SubCatagory#", "#SubCatagory#",
   <CFSET LastTopCatagory = TopCatagory>
  <CFELSE>
   listB.addOptions("#TopCatagory#",
   "#SubCatagory#", "#SubCatagory#",
   <CFSET LastTopCatagory = TopCatagory>
  </CFIF>
 </CFOUTPUT>);

This is what it outputs now:

listB.addOptions("Programming", "Perl", "Perl", "CSS", "CSS", "PHP", "PHP", "JavaScript", "JavaScript", "Coldfusion", "Coldfusion", ); listB.addOption ("Motorsports", "300ZX", "300ZX", "JDM", "JDM", "3000GT", "3000GT", "Eclipse", "Eclipse", "RX7", "RX7", "Import Show", ); listB.addOptions("Fitness", "Running", "Running", "Weight Training", "Weight Training", );

Notice the comma before the closing parentheses?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try removing the last comma before the line :

    <CFSET LastTopCatagory = TopCatagory>

So the final code would be this one :

 <CFOUTPUT query="q_LinkCatagories">
  <CFIF IsDefined("LastTopCatagory")>
   <CFIF TopCatagory neq LastTopCatagory>); listB.addOptions("#TopCatagory#",</CFIF>
   "#SubCatagory#", "#SubCatagory#"
   <CFSET LastTopCatagory = TopCatagory>
  <CFELSE>
   listB.addOptions("#TopCatagory#",
   "#SubCatagory#", "#SubCatagory#"
   <CFSET LastTopCatagory = TopCatagory>
  </CFIF>
 </CFOUTPUT>);

Goodluck !

Hmm, you can't see follow the flow of flow controls very well, eh? That would remove the comma after the first SubCatagory under each TopCatagory, not the last one.

If it doesn't work, maybe this is the right code :

 <CFOUTPUT query="q_LinkCatagories">
  <CFIF IsDefined("LastTopCatagory")>
   <CFIF TopCatagory neq LastTopCatagory>); listB.addOptions("#TopCatagory#"</CFIF>
   ,"#SubCatagory#", "#SubCatagory#"
   <CFSET LastTopCatagory = TopCatagory>
  <CFELSE>
   listB.addOptions("#TopCatagory#",
   "#SubCatagory#", "#SubCatagory#"
   <CFSET LastTopCatagory = TopCatagory>
  </CFIF>
 </CFOUTPUT>);

Note : Be careful of the location of the comma ...

Actually, I would like to apologize for my first post.  I didn't look carefully to the flow of your code.

Perhaps, the second one might work.  I hope so...

Best wishes!
