Invalid CFML Construct - setting a variable to equal two or more coldfusion variables

Here's what I'm trying to do:

In the Application.cfm, set variables as
<cfparam name='FolderLevelOne'default='Corporate'>
<cfparam name='FolderLevelTwo'default='AETIA'>

Then use that to create more variables...
<cfparam name='docs'default='#FolderLevelOne#/#FolderLevelTwo/docs/'>

Here is the full example and the error. I just noticed that it seems to pass by line 16 but error on line 18...??
<cfparam name='Level'default='2'><!--- Level off of root --->
<cfparam name='FolderLevelOne'default='Corporate'><!--- Determined by value for Level. Corresponds to names of folder sublevels from wwwroot --->

Or no, it looks like Line 16 is causing the error. How do I set the parameters the way I'm intending?

firstbankak,

<cfparam name='domain'default='http://test-intranet.firstbankak.com/'>

Should be

<cfparam name="domain" default="http://test-intranet.firstbankak.com/" />

NOTE: Double quotes and a space between the paramater names.

Regards

So,

<cfparam name='docs'default='#FolderLevelOne#/#FolderLevelTwo/docs/'>

Should be

<cfparam name="docs" default="#FolderLevelOne#/#FolderLevelTwo/docs/" />

You're missing a #.

Try:

<cfparam name="docs" default="#FolderLevelOne#/#FolderLevelTwo#/docs/">

Thanks aseusainc, those things start disappearing when you've been staring at it forever! That fixed it perfectly.

Plucka, I don't think the single and double quotes matter; they can be used interchangeably. At least for me it has been working that way. Opening and closing marks just need to match....
