I want to do this.

Show rows from my table dynamically. I know how to do this.

If the current record being shown does not have an empty value in the Description column, then show the words DESC.

DESC will be a link that opens a new window showing only that particular records Description field.

<TABLE WIDTH="99%" BORDER="0" CELLSPACING="0" CELLPADDING="0">
  <TR>
    <TD>ID</TD>
    <TD>Type</TD>
    <TD>Description</TD>
  </TR>
  <cfoutput QUERY="cars">
  <TR>
 
    <TD>#ID#</TD>
    <TD>#VehicleType#</TD>
    <TD>#Description#</TD>
  </TR></cfoutput>
</TABLE>

For the page whatever.cfm,

In order to be able to reuse this page for my other tables, i think i will want to pass what table it is coming from. I have a hidden input field for this traveling from the original page that states what table it is coming from.

ex. on my cars.cfm page, i created a hidden field (TYPEFLAG) with value=cars.
on trucks.cfm page, i created a hidden field (TYPEFLAG) with  value=trucks

I know i will have to have a CFQUERY to talk to the DB (on the whatever.cfm page), but how will i take the value from the URL and use it in my CFQUERY?

??
<CFQUERY name="allVehicles" datasource="Vehicles">
SELECT Desc FROM #TYPEFLAG# Where ID IS url.whatever
</CFQUERY>
??

Also, how would i append more than one value to the url?

??
<a href="whatever.cfm?ID=#cars.ID#"&Table=#TYPEFLAG#>DESC</a>
??

<a href="whatever.cfm?ID=#cars.ID#&Table=#TYPEFLAG#">DESC</a>

then on whatever.cfm

<CFQUERY name="allVehicles" datasource="Vehicles">
SELECT Desc FROM #url.table# Where ID = <cfqueryparam value="#url.ID#" cfsqltype="cf_sql_numeric">
</CFQUERY>
