StructFind Syntax?

Hi,

I am trying to use the function StructFind, but I think I have this syntax slightly off, I am hoping a second set of eyes can assist.  I am doing an insert into the database.  Here is the sql snippet.  I am not using any named arguments into this CFC, so that is the reason the structure is called "arguments[1]".  In any case, my problem seems to be related to my use of the # signs.

Is there anyone way to write this?

Thanks,

<cffunction name="doSomething" access="public">
<cfset var strResult = "" />
 
<cfloop from="1" to="3" index="i">
 
INSERT INTO TableA (
phase_description
)
 
VALUES(
'#StructFind(arguments[1], 'phase_description_' & "#i#" )#'
)
 
</cfloop>
<cfreturn strResult />
</cffunction>

Mr_NilCommented:
StructFind(arguments[1], 'phase_description_' & i )

or

StructFind(arguments[1], 'phase_description_#i#' )

The first is most likely to work.

You should also be using cfqueryparam in that insert, otherwise you have the potential to leave your application open to the delights of SQL Injection attacks.

Yes, I removed that to simply my posting, I am using <cfqueryparam>
