I have a variables set in a cookie. It can have a max of three variables, e.g. (17000,18234,21345)
I've tried to loop through them with no success. I need to loop through the cookie and pull each value out and assign the cookie name (CFID) and number to it. For example the first value would be CIDS1 and the second, CIDS2, etc.

<cfset arr = ArrayNew(1)>
<cfloop index="i" list="#CIDS#" delimiters=",">
  <cfset ArrayAppend(arr, i)>
</cfloop>

I forgot to add the rest of the loop,
<cfloop index="j" from="1" to="#ArrayLen(arr)#">
 <cfoutput> #arr[j]# </cfoutput>
</cfloop>

I guess I don't quite get what you are trying to do (not that it's that important that I understand)
1) you have one cookie whose value is a comma delimited list - correct?
2) you want to loop through this value and create new variables for each one - is that correct?

something like this?
<cfset cids="123,456,789">
<cfset counter=0>
<cfloop index="i" list="#CIDS#" delimiters=",">
<cfset counter=counter+1>
      <cfset "CIDS#counter#"=i>
</cfloop>
<cfloop index="j" from="1" to="#counter#">
<cfoutput>#variables["CIDS" & j]#</cfoutput><br>
</cfloop>

if this isn't close please provide info as to what you want to do in the end - i.e. the concept

Sorry for the question confusion. I need to loop through each cookie value and create a new one. For example,
If the cookies first value is 123 I need to do a <cfset number1 = 123>
If the second is 456 then <<cfset number2 = 456>
There are not always three values, there might not even be any depending on previous functions.
How can I loop through and add the cfsets, if existing?

see the code i posted above
this will loop and set the number of vars that you have in your list
if you have  a list of 2 then 2 vars will be set
if you have 5 then 5 will be set
try it out ...

note that the last cfloop in my example is not part of the code but just a way for you to see what has been set
