I have a UDF which I got from cflib.org
http://cflib.org/udf/QueryToCSV2

The UDF = QueryToCSV2(query [, headers] [, cols])

My Question:

How do i pass these params to the UDF

query=MyQuery
headers=FirstName,LastName,Phone
cols=First_Name,Last_name,phonenumber

How would I write the code:
like
#QueryToCSV2(MyQuery,(FirstName,LastName,Phone),(First_Name,Last_name,phonenumber)#

This does not work any ideas?

If I am understanding correctly, you want to pass in a parameter instead of literals for column headings / name you can try like this.

I don't have CF on this machine to test, but can also try EVAL(
<cfset test = QueryToCSV2(MyQuery, FirstName & "," & LastName & "," & Phone, First_Name & "," & Last_name & "," & phonenumber)>
 
<!--- don't believe it is needed on right side of cfset, but can add ## --->
<cfset test = QueryToCSV2(MyQuery, #FirstName# & "," & #LastName# & "," & #Phone#, #First_Name# & "," & #Last_name# & "," & #phonenumber#)>

Please ignore this part *I don't have CF on this machine to test, but can also try EVAL(
That is what the second was showing using the #variablename# as I read your question to mean that FirstName was a named parameter, etc.
