and it says:

Invalid tag nesting configuration.  
A query driven CFOUTPUT tag is nested inside a CFOUTPUT tag that also has a QUERY= attribute. This is not allowed. Nesting these tags implies that you want to use grouped processing. However, only the top-level tag can specify the query that drives the processing

with the error pointing to the <cfoutput query="loopproduct"> line

Try and change <cfoutput query="loopproduct"> to a cfloop

<cfset subtotal = 0>
          <cfif isdefined("session.cart")>
          <cfif IsStruct(session.cart)>
       
        <cfloop collection="#session.cart#" item="i">
          <cfquery datasource="products" name="loopproduct">select * from allproducts
          where productid = #session.cart[i][1]# and periodid = #session.cart[i][2]#
          </cfquery>
          <cfloop query="loopproduct">
            <cfset totalunitprice = session.cart[i][3] * price>
            <cfset subtotal = subtotal + totalunitprice>
            <tr>
              <td>
                <div align="center"><font size="2" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">#session.cart[i][3]#</font></div></td>
              <td valign="top">
                <font size="2" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">#description#</font></td>
              <td align=right valign=top><font size="2" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">#rentalperiod#</font></td>
              <td align=right valign=top><font size="2" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">#dollarformat(price)#</font></td>
              <td valign=top align=right><font size="2" face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">#dollarformat(totalunitprice)#</font></td>
            </tr>

I think the problem is in the <cfloop> for the session.  I don't think you can loop through session variables like that then have session.cart[i][1].  But,  I haven't worked with sessions alot so I would post another question or a pointer question to this one so other experts will look.  Sorry I couldn't be of more help on this one.
