i want my table output to work like so....

a department (department.name)
- category in this department (categories .name)
- another category in this department (categories .name)
 
etc

but the isses i have (i think) is that they are both called name

i have this so far...

<cfquery name="ArtCategories">      
                  SELECT d.name, d.depId, d.pos, c.name, c.catId
                  FROM departments d
                  INNER JOIN categories c
                  ON c.depId = d.depId
                  ORDER BY d.pos
                  </cfquery>

                  <cfoutput query="ArtCategories" group="name">
                        <h3>#name#</h3>
                        <cfoutput>
                        <p>#name#</p>
                        
                        </cfoutput>
                  </cfoutput>

the fact that both columns are called name should not be a problem and your query should work
what is the problem you encounter ?

the error is...

 Error Executing Database Query.
[Macromedia][SQLServer JDBC Driver][SQLServer]The column prefix 'c' does not match with a table name or alias name used in the query.

in order to get the formatted output you want , try this

select name
from (
SELECT 1 as cola, depid, name                
FROM departments d
union all
select 2 as cola, depid, name
from categories
) as t
order by col1,depid
