hi all, this is the script i have for deleting records:

<cfparam name="PageNum_DelAssesment" default="1">
<cfquery name="DelAssesment" datasource="netteh">
SELECT Assesment.HandOutDate, Assesment.HandInDate, Assesment.AssesmentID, Assesment.Strand,
Assesment.ModuleName, Assesment.Tutor FROM Assesment
<cfset MaxRows_DelAssesment=10>
<cfset StartRow_DelAssesment=Min((PageNum_DelAssesment-1)*MaxRows_DelAssesment+1,Max(DelAssesment.RecordCount,1))>
<cfset EndRow_DelAssesment=Min(StartRow_DelAssesment+MaxRows_DelAssesment-1,DelAssesment.RecordCount)>
<cfset TotalPages_DelAssesment=Ceiling(DelAssesment.RecordCount/MaxRows_DelAssesment)>

<title>Untitled Document</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">


<table border="1">
<cfoutput query="DelAssesment" startRow="#StartRow_DelAssesment#" maxRows="#MaxRows_DelAssesment#">
<td><a href="deleteConfirm.cfm">Delete</a></td>


<cfquery name="Hand1" datasource="netteh">
SELECT Assesment.HandOutDate FROM Assesment
<cfquery name="hand2" datasource="netteh">
SELECT Assesment.HandInDate FROM Assesment
<cfquery name="ID" datasource="netteh">
SELECT Assesment.AssesmentID FROM Assesment
<cfquery name="strand" datasource="netteh">
SELECT Assesment.Strand FROM Assesment
<cfquery name="ModName" datasource="netteh">
SELECT Assesment.ModuleName FROM Assesment
<cfquery name="Tut" datasource="netteh">
SELECT Assesment.Tutor FROM Assesment
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

<form name="form1" method="post" action="">
<input type="hidden" name="hiddenField">
Please confirm that you want to delete this record</p>
<form name="form2" method="post" action="">
<input name="textfield" type="text" value="<cfoutput>#Hand1.HandOutDate#</cfoutput>">
<form name="form3" method="post" action="">
<input name="textfield2" type="text" value="<cfoutput>#hand2.HandInDate#</cfoutput>">
<form name="form4" method="post" action="">
<input name="textfield3" type="text" value="<cfoutput>#ID.AssesmentID#</cfoutput>">
<form name="form5" method="post" action="">
<input name="textfield4" type="text" value="<cfoutput>#strand.Strand#</cfoutput>">
<form name="form6" method="post" action="">
<input name="textfield5" type="text" value="<cfoutput>#ModName.ModuleName#</cfoutput>">
<form name="form7" method="post" action="">
<input name="textfield6" type="text" value="<cfoutput>#Tut.Tutor#</cfoutput>">
<p> <a href="confirmed.cfm"><strong>CONFIRM DELETION</strong></a></p>
<p>&nbsp; </p>

and finally confirm.cfm:
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

<cfif IsDefined("FORM.AssesmentID") AND #FORM.AssesmentID# NEQ "">
<cfquery datasource="netteh">
DELETE FROM Assesment WHERE AssesmentID=#FORM.AssesmentID#
<cflocation url="confirmed2.cfm">


it works fine except when it comes to the last page which is the confirm.cfm that nothing happens. please can anyone make any corrections? thanks

and also in the
<cfif IsDefined("FORM.AssesmentID") AND #FORM.AssesmentID# NEQ "">

you are trying to access "AssesmentID" from FORM which i cannot see in the confirm.cfm page.
