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

delete_assesment.cfm:
<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
</cfquery>
<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)>

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

<body>

<table border="1">
<tr>
<td>HandOutDate</td>
<td>HandInDate</td>
<td>AssesmentID</td>
<td>Strand</td>
<td>ModuleName</td>
<td>Tutor</td>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<cfoutput query="DelAssesment" startRow="#StartRow_DelAssesment#" maxRows="#MaxRows_DelAssesment#">
<tr>
<td>#DelAssesment.HandOutDate#</td>
<td>#DelAssesment.HandInDate#</td>
<td>#DelAssesment.AssesmentID#</td>
<td>#DelAssesment.Strand#</td>
<td>#DelAssesment.ModuleName#</td>
<td>#DelAssesment.Tutor#</td>
<td><a href="deleteConfirm.cfm">Delete</a></td>
</tr>
</cfoutput>
</table>

</body>
</html>

Deleteconfrim.cfm:
<cfquery name="Hand1" datasource="netteh">
SELECT Assesment.HandOutDate FROM Assesment
</cfquery>
<cfquery name="hand2" datasource="netteh">
SELECT Assesment.HandInDate FROM Assesment
</cfquery>
<cfquery name="ID" datasource="netteh">

</cfquery>
<cfquery name="strand" datasource="netteh">

</cfquery>
<cfquery name="ModName" datasource="netteh">
SELECT Assesment.ModuleName FROM Assesment
</cfquery>
<cfquery name="Tut" datasource="netteh">

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

<body>
<form name="form1" method="post" action="">
<p>
<input type="hidden" name="hiddenField">
Please confirm that you want to delete this record</p>
</form>
<form name="form2" method="post" action="">
<p>HandOutDate
<input name="textfield" type="text" value="<cfoutput>#Hand1.HandOutDate#</cfoutput>">
</p>
</form>
<form name="form3" method="post" action="">
HandInDate
<input name="textfield2" type="text" value="<cfoutput>#hand2.HandInDate#</cfoutput>">
</form>
<form name="form4" method="post" action="">

</form>
<p> <a href="confirmed.cfm"><strong>CONFIRM DELETION</strong></a></p>
<p>&nbsp; </p>
</body>
</html>

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

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

</body>
</html>

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.
