i am trying to create a CFMX program to allow a user to craft a standard letter to a list of `users` - where certain dynamic data will have to come from a database - such as addressee/email-recipient. see below. i will store this whole blob in a text-file.  I will provide a template for the admin to change the content of the text file.


Dear %addressee%,
The following books are outstanding from your account. Please return them ASAP.



what is the most efficient way of subsituting the dynamic info into the %var%?
Should i use REREPLACE? If there are 50 such variables - i would need to REREPLACE 50 times. Is this the only way.
