500 points - Add records from a temp table

I am currently working with ColdFusion 5.0.

I have a group of student records in a temp table (FName, LName, UserName, Password) which I need to add to 3 other tables within the same database.

We have created a routine that generates random numbers for the users, but now I need a solution that will use the information from the temp table in place of the random numbers.  The temp table will hold anywhere from 250 to 500 students at a time and I need it to loop through all students in the temp table and create user accounts for them.  I've included the random code below for reference, but the student counts and student limts aren't important for this solution.

The code for the random function is below.

<cfif isdefined("url.AutoCreate") >
                  <cfif isdefined("form.autocreate")>
                        <cfif #form.studentcount# is "">
                        <cfset studentcount = 0>
                        <cfelse>
                        <cfset studentcount = "#form.studentcount#">
                        </cfif>
                        <cfset count = #getstudentlimit2.recordcount# + #variables.studentcount#>      
                        <cfif #variables.count# lte #getmaxstudent2.maxstudents# and #variables.studentcount# gt 0>
                              <cfquery name="GetTeacherDetails" datasource="Coin_GLynk">
                                    Select substring(lname,1,2) as lname from users where user_id = #client.user_id#
                              </cfquery>
                        <cfloop from="1" to="#variables.studentcount#" index="i">                        
                                    <cftransaction>

                                                Insert into Users (siteID, agroup, role, viewable, status, logout, teacherID)
                                                                  Values('#client.SiteID#', 'Student', 'USR', 'T', 'Active','1', #client.user_id#)

hi @TobinLewis,  try adding the codes I have added.....

<cfif isdefined("url.AutoCreate") >
               <cfif isdefined("form.autocreate")>
                    <cfif #form.studentcount# is "">
                    <cfset studentcount = 0>
                    <cfelse>
                    <cfset studentcount = "#form.studentcount#">
                    </cfif>
                    <cfset count = #getstudentlimit2.recordcount# + #variables.studentcount#>

      SELECT  Distinct FName, LName, UserName, Password
