I need help creating a temporary MS SQL 2000 table in coldFusion. I keep having trouble with the syntax.  The "#" sign is giving me trouble. When i remove the "#" sign it creates an actual table in the DB.

<cfquery name="createTempTable" datasource="#dbname#" username="#dbuser#" password="#dbpw#">
CREATE TABLE #tmp_report_table
(      name      VARCHAR(30),
      id      VARCHAR(30),
)
</cfquery>

couple of things

you've an extra comma at end of id      VARCHAR(30), <----
and you need to escape the # with ## for CF to not throw an error


<cfquery name="createTempTable" datasource="#dbname#" username="#dbuser#" password="#dbpw#">
CREATE TABLE ##tmp_report_table
(      name      VARCHAR(30),
      id      VARCHAR(30)
)
</cfquery>
