I have the following code but want to use the cfdocument tag so that when someone prints, it will know to break the page at the bottom and create a new page without splitting up rows also putting the header with name etc, just on the top of each page. Any suggestions?
<cfif session.locationselect eq 'please select'>

<cfset session.locationselect = 'n/a'>

</cfif>

<cfquery name="calPrint" datasource="hgram_med">

SELECT * from calendar 

</cfquery>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

<head>

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

<cfoutput>

<title>Clinical Calendar // Date: #url.startDate# - #url.endDate# // Company: #session.companySelect# // Clinic: #session.locationSelect#</title>

</cfoutput>

<style type="text/css">

<!--

body,td,th {

	font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;

	font-size: 11px;

}

td

{

	border-color:#999999;

table{

border-style: solid;
 

}

@media print {

* {

  background-color: inherit;

  background-image: inherit;

}
 

-->

</style>

<script>

function printPage()

{

	window.print();

}

</script>

</head>

As the previous solution states, you'll need to determine ahead of time if any of your fields will wrap. This will affect when you insert a page break.  Let's assume you have no fields that will wrap. Something like this should do the trick:
<cfset variables.iMaxRows = 20/>

<cfset variables.iLineCounter = 0/>
 

<cfoutput query="calPrint">

<tr bgcolor="##ffffff">

    <td>#timeFormat(calPrint.timeBeg, 'hh:mm tt')#&nbsp;</td>

    <td>#timeFormat(calPrint.timeEnd, 'hh:mm tt')#&nbsp;</td>

    <td colspan="2" >#calPrint.lstnam#, #calPrint.fstnam#&nbsp;</td>

    <td>#calPrint.membno#&nbsp;</td>

    <td>#calPrint.company#&nbsp;</td>

    <td>#calPrint.location#&nbsp;</td>

    <td>#calPrint.provider#&nbsp;</td>

    <td>#calPrint.duration#</td>

  </tr>

  <tr>

    <td colspan="100%">Notes:<br />

      #calPrint.callnotes#

      <br />

<br />

</td>

  </tr>

    <tr>

    <td align="right" colspan="10" bgcolor="dddddd" style="height:2px; border-bottom-color:666666; border-bottom-style:solid; border-bottom-width:12px;"><p style="font-size:1px; color:white;">1</p></td>

  </tr>
 
 

   <cfset variables.iLineCounter = variables.iLineCounter + 1/>

   <cfif variables.iLineCounter EQ variables.iMaxRows>

      <br style="page-break-before: always"/> <!-- This can be set in css -->

      <cfset variables.iLineCounter = 0/>

   </cfif>
 

</cfoutput>

what is the purpose of the variables scope?

A variable is a container that holds a piece of information that can be used anywhere in your code.  Scoping your variables makes the code easier to read and helps speed up your pages (a little).  It also ensures that you will not step on a variable of the same name in a different scope.  Furthermore, it makes site-wide updates easier if you set global variables.

By scoping your variables, you could have two more variables with the same name:
FORM.myVariable
URL.myVariable
REQUEST.myVariable

Here is an article that helps explain this concept

Also, if you search livedocs for variable scope, you can get more info.
