Pagination of multiple feeds/queries

I am currently adding various feeds of hotels to our site www.hotelkingdom.com, where I have a glitch is that I need to enable pagination so that only 25 results are displayed per page. Pretty simple if I only had one query but what I have is a query of our personal inventory followed by an xml feed that I am converting on the fly into coldfusion query results. My question is if anyone has experience in adding pagination to a page where the results will be multiple queries one right after another.

I would create a table on my local server where I would insert all data recieved from the remote feeds.

Then I could query my local source and include pagination, sorting, grouping, etc.

Be sure to create an IDENTITY column ("myIdendity") in your local table that starts at 1 (one) witha a seed of 1 (one).  Before you insert the data into your local table, truncate the table from the last load.  This will reset the IDENTITY column.  Then your query would look like this:

SELECT TOP 25 *
FROM myTable
WHERE myIdentity >= 1

I had actually considered doing that, but that still doesn't help with the existing hotels we have in our personal database I somehow need to merge the two. :)

This could be solved in two ways:

1. The INSERT data could come from a UNION query on your CF page that would mix your existing hotels with the external ones

INSERT INTO myTable (field1, field2, ...)
(    select * from myLocalHotels
     UNION ALL
     select * from myRemoteHotels
)

2.  Inserting the external and internal data in two steps.  Insert your existing hotels first and then the remote ones.

without seeing your code....there's a couple of ways you might do this...

set your query results into a struct
use query of query
create an xml file using cffile and append the results, then read it back
