Thank you for your help.  I modified the query and it works fine but the result page does not seem to output the right results.

I want the users to search with ItemNo and any other data and have the result page show the search criteria. e.g if I search with ItemNo and Date, I want the reult page to show the itemno, date and any other data I want.

I have the following query for the result page:

<cfparam name="FORM.AgendaItemNo" default="">
<cfparam name="FORM.Comm_CouncilDate" default="">
<cfparam name="FORM.Comm_CouncilName" default="">
<cfquery name="spResults" datasource="SpeakerCard">
SELECT *
FROM SpeakerCard
WHERE AgendaItemNo IN ('#FORM.AgendaItemNo#', '#FORM.Comm_CouncilDate#', '#FORM.Comm_CouncilName#')
ORDER BY SpeakerCard.AgendaItemNo, Comm_CouncilDate, Comm_CouncilName</cfquery>

Then I have my output table.

How do I fix this

Hi iolike,
 
what is borken? The question is not clear.
If you want to dispaly the form field in teh table you can do like from query it will be like that... if you want form variable then replace queryname.variable with form.youravariable
<cfoutput>
<table>
<tr>
<td>
#spresutls.yourvariable#
</td>
</tr>
<table>
</cfoutput>

>>" I want the reult page to show the itemno, date and any other data I want."

if the query works fine and you just want help outputing I would do something like this.

<cfoutput>
<table>
      <tr>
            <td>ItemNo</td>
            <td>Date</td>
            <td>Other Data</td>
      </tr>
      <cfloop query="spResults">
      <tr class="">#iif(current mod 2,'"altbg"','""')#
            <td>ItemNo</td>
            <td>Date</td>
            <td>Other Data</td>
      </tr>
      </cfloop>      
</table>
</cfoutput>
