Hi everyone, i need to learn coldfusion this weekend, ive started by converting my ASP code to Coldfusion..

<cfquery name="GetItems" datasource="#Request.MainDSN#">

<cfif #URL.brand# NEQ "" and #URL.all# NEQ "true">
Select * from parts where catid = #URL.catid# and brand = #URL.brand# order by brand
<cfelseif #URL.brand EQ# ""> 
Select * from parts where catid = #URL.catid# order by brand
</cfif>

</cfquery>
 i get this error Context validation error for tag cfif.. for people who know asp the original is below. Basically i want to choose which sql gets executed based on the URl..

if request.querystring("brand") <> "" and request.querystring("all") <> "true" then
set objRS = objDB.execute("Select * from parts where catid = " &request.querystring("catid")& " and brand = '" &request.querystring("brand")& "' order by brand")

else
set objRS = objDB.execute("Select * from parts where catid = " &request.querystring("catid")&" order by brand")
end if

Also if anyone has any coldfusion coding, something i can learn from, id really appreciate it if some could email me some code.. mrsigma@yahoo.com

Cheers
