Ok.. this is the first time I have tried using the cfgrid command and I am  getting insane errors.  I googled the error and found millions of posts on this with not one solid answer.

Two pages of code exist for this problem:
____________________________________________________

<cfquery name="empdata" datasource="pess">
      SELECT * FROM tbl_project
</cfquery>

<cfform  action="reports/contractsupdate.cfm" >
      <cfgrid name="contractgrid" query="empdata"
                   width="500" insert="yes" delete="yes" height="800" enabled="yes"
                  autoWidth = "yes"
                   insertButton = "Insert a New Contract"   deleteButton = "Delete Contract" selectmode="edit" >
                        
            <cfgridcolumn name="contractnumber">
            <cfgridcolumn name="projectname">
      </cfgrid>
      <br>
      <input  type="Submit" value="Submit Changes to be Saved">
</cfform>

____________________________________________________
<cfgridupdate grid="contractgrid"
datasource="pess"
keyonly="yes"
tablename="tbl_project"><span style="classmainfont">
The contracts table has been updated.  


<input type=button value=" Close Window " onClick="javascript:window.close();"></span>
_______________________________________________________

THE TABLE

projectid int (indexed key field)
contactnumber varchar 100
projectname varchar 100
dateofinsert  datetime (date stamp)

__________________________________________________________
THE ERROR
 cfgridupdate could not find the grid named contractgrid.


________________________________________________________________

Any ideas?  Or does this tag have a bug in it?

This is not the kind of response you were looking for I doubt, but I'd suggest scratching it and do an html grid.
You'll have a lot more power and flexibility.
I'd also ditch cfforms if I were you.
html forms will again give you a lot more power and flexibility.
It's fairly easy to do a combination of client side (javascript) validation and server side (cf code) validation.
And it will all run faster than your cfgrid applet.

btw - I don't know why the error you're getting.

did you add a selectmode="edit" to your cfgrid tag?

The tag has a bug in it.  Adobe needs to fix with version 8.0
