Hi,

I am trying to work with this recordset and cant recall how to do this.  Each record has a date, but when looping over the records if the date in the currentRow is equal to the date in the previous row, then don't show a date.  This should be very easy to do.  I just cant recall the correct syntax for doing so.

I have a query that I am looping over and each record has a "date" so:

DATE          STATE
04/10/06     CA
04/10/06     OR
04/15/06     FL
04/18/06     WY


If you notice above, the date 04/10/06 appears twice.  I only want the date to appear once if it is the same so it should be like:

DATE          STATE
04/10/06     CA
                  OR
04/15/06     FL
04/18/06     WY

There must be a way to take the currentRow's date value and then look at the previous row and if its the same, make it blank.

Easiest way would be to set a temp variable

<cfset variables.temp_value = "">
<cfoutput query="your_data">
     <cfif your_data.date NEQ variables.temp_value >
             display date here
     </cfif>
   // - Rest of data here


<cfset variables.temp_value = your_data.date>
</cfoutput>

This should displat the date the first time it appears in the recordset but skip other rows
