How to use result from CFSCRIPT in CFQUERY

Hi,

I have  a script that captures a visitor's IP address, then converts it to a number.  This is so I can then lookup their city/region for personalization purposes on my site.  The site is not live yet, but I'm having an issue with using the returned value from the CFSCRIPT as a variable to query my DB.  Here's what the script looks like:

<CFSET visitorIP = "#CGI.Remote_Addr#">

 <cfscript>
   function Dot2LongIP(visitorIP)
   {
      if(arguments.visitorIP EQ "")
      {
        return 0;
      }
      else
      {
        ips = ListToArray( arguments.visitorIP, "." );
        return( ( 16777216 * ips[1] ) + ( 65536 * ips[2] ) + ( 256 * ips[3] ) + ips[4] );
      }
   }
</cfscript>

I need to use the resulting number to query a table in my DSN.  Right now, I have:

<cfset myIPNumber = #Dot2LongIP#>

But it's not working correctly - the returned value is "cfindex2ecfm1275582484$funcDOT2LONGIP@115e47a".

I only need the 1275582484 number out of that.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

try this

 <cfscript>
   function Dot2LongIP(visitorIP)
   {
      if(arguments.visitorIP EQ "")
      {
        return 0;
      }
      else
      {
        ips = ListToArray( arguments.visitorIP, "." );
        return( ( 16777216 * ips[1] ) + ( 65536 * ips[2] ) + ( 256 * ips[3] ) + ips[4] );
      }
   }
</cfscript>


<CFSET visitorIP = Dot2LongIP(CGI.Remote_Addr)>

<cfdump var="#visitorIP#">
