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

you are calling "confirmed.cfm" in the Deleteconfrim.cfm page but the name of the page is "confirm.cfm" change the name to "confirmed.cfm" it will work

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.
