Query binding Error when building an or statement in a where clause

onaled777 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09

I am trying to build a where clause so i can use cfqueryparam when getting a query to filter by certain product IDs

I get a list of productids to start with, then I try to build a where clause with OR statements and store the string in the variable ProductWhereClause

If I should print out the value for the variable ProductWhereClause, paste it into the actual query I get results and run it in SQL Server Management Studio, I get the results

If I use the variable productWhereClause in the query however, then I get an error about invalid parameter bindings.

The details are in the code snippet

Can anyone provide a solution for this?
<!--- This is how I build where clause for the products ---->

			<cfloop list="#arguments.P_ID#" index="listIndex">
				<cfset listCounter = listCounter + 1>		
				<cfset productWhereClause = productWhereClause & "p.Product_ID = <cfqueryparam value='#listIndex#' cfsqltype='cf_sql_integer'>" >
				<cfif listCounter neq ListLen(arguments.P_ID)>
					<cfset productWhereClause = productWhereClause & ' OR ' >

<!--- This is how I insert it in the where clause --->

							   AND PreserveSingleQuotes(#ProductWhereClause#)

<!---This is the error that is being received--->

 	 [Macromedia][SQLServer JDBC Driver]Invalid parameter binding(s). 

<!--- This is the string that is printed out in my log file with the statement: <cflog log="application" text="#ProductWhereClause#">

AND ( p.Product_ID = <cfqueryparam value='81' cfsqltype='cf_sql_integer'> OR p.Product_ID = <cfqueryparam value='31' cfsqltype='cf_sql_integer'> OR p.Product_ID = <cfqueryparam value='34' cfsqltype='cf_sql_integer'> OR p.Product_ID = <cfqueryparam value='80' cfsqltype='cf_sql_integer'> OR p.Product_ID = <cfqueryparam value='32' cfsqltype='cf_sql_integer'> OR p.Product_ID = <cfqueryparam value='85' cfsqltype='cf_sql_integer'> )
