mkishline,

What mk has provided would work for you.

Just build up the xml you require, then output the resulting variable (body in this example) at the end. No need to write it to the file.

<cfsavecontent variable="myXml">
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <root>
        <cfoutput query="addcbook">
        <item>
            <bname>#bname#</bname>
            <date>#date#</date>
            <bauthor>#bauthor#</bauthor>
            <bookss>#bookss#</bookss>
            <bidss>#bidss#</bidss>
        </item>
        </cfoutput>
    </root>
</cfsavecontent>

<cfoutput>#myXml#</cfoutput>

Regards
Plucka

Why the follow: complete code with dynamic variable all variable will show

<cfsetting enablecfoutputonly="yes">
<cfquery name="QueryCheck" datasource=#dbname#>
      SELECT      *
      From      ClientDB
</cfquery>
<cfsetting enablecfoutputonly="no">
<cfparam name="FileName" default="myfilename">      
<cfheader name="Content-Disposition" value="filename=#FileName#">
<xml id="QueryResult">
      <QueryRes><cfoutput query="QueryCheck">
            <QueryRow>
                  <RowCount>#QueryCheck.CurrentRow#</RowCount><cfloop list="#QueryCheck.Columnlist#" index="Fields">
                  <#Fields#>#HTMLeditFormat(evaluate("#Fields#"))#</#Fields#></cfloop>
            </QueryRow></cfoutput>
      </QueryRes>
</xml>
