Hello experts.
I have one insert user page and the cfquery:
<cfquery name="Adduser" datasource="mydb">
   INSERT INTO users (Firstname, Lastname, country, City, email)
  VALUES ('#Form.Firstname#',#Form.Lastname#, '#Form.country#','#Form.City#','#Form.email#')
</cfquery>
I want to check first if there is already a user with the same  email.
If so than redirect to a page userexist.cfm
If not than after inserting the user redirect to userdetailpage.cfml
(i use coldfusion and sql.)
Any help?

run a SELECT query before your INSERT query to select user with submitted email address - if the SELECT query returns any rows, then a user with that email address already exists = redirect to userexists; otherwise proceed with your INSERT query.

<cfquery name="Checkuser" datasource="mydb">
   SELECT email FROM users WHERE email = <cfqueryparam cfsqltype="cf_sql_varchar" value="#Form.email#">
</cfquery>
<cfif Checkuser.recordcount>
... redirect ....
<cfelse>
... your insert query....
</cfif>

Check this:
<cfquery name="Checkuser" datasource="mydb">
   SELECT Firstname, Lastname, country, City, email FROM users WHERE email='#Form.email#'
</cfquery>
<cfif Checkuser.RecordCount GT 0 >
<cflocation url="userexist.cfm" >
<cfelse>
<cfquery name="Adduser" datasource="mydb">
   INSERT INTO users (Firstname, Lastname, country, City, email)
  VALUES ('#Form.Firstname#',#Form.Lastname#, '#Form.country#','#Form.City#','#Form.email#')
</cfquery>
<cflocation url="userdetailpage.cfm" >
</cfif>
