Store transaction in memory

I have several items that instead of creating a table and storing it there, I would like to store it in memory so I can use it later.
I am new to this so please excuse the layman's verbage.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You have to add a cfapplication tag and define a session for your pages using the same application.
In the session scope you can define complex variables like arrays and structures. There you can keep your table data.

      sessionTimeout = #CreateTimeSpan(0, 0, 0, 60)#
      sessionManagement = "Yes">

   session.employee = StructNew();
   StructInsert(session.employee, "firstname", FORM.firstname);
   StructInsert(session.employee, "lastname", FORM.lastname);
   StructInsert(session.employee, "email", FORM.email);
