I am getting the following error:


The error occurred in E:\CustomerData\webspaces\webspace_00104265\wwwroot\modules\q_event.cfm: line 812

811 : <cfqueryparam cfsqltype="CF_SQL_TIMESTAMP" value="#dateformat(now(), 'mm/dd/yyyy')#">,
812 : <cfqueryparam cfsqltype="CF_SQL_TIMESTAMP" value="#TimeFormat(Now(), 'hh:mm tt')#">)
813 : SELECT @@Identity AS MusicID
814 :



do I even need to be using the cfqueryparam?

The dateformat(now() seems to be working but not the TimeFormat(Now()

Can you post the whole query and the error message? That snippet just shows some sort of error occurred. But not what the error is.

>> do I even need to be using the cfqueryparam?

   Technically, no. But it's a good practice for several reasons: performance, security and
   correct interpretation of date values.

>>  SELECT @@Identity AS MusicID

    For CF8+ it's better to use cfquery's result attribute to get the new ID. For other versions
    SCOPE_IDENTITY() is probably what you want instead.  @@Identity can return the wrong
    value under certain conditions.

I determined that I was passing a wrong variable, farther back in application - but I had forgotten that I had not upgraded this code to the correct standard in terms of getting the new recordset that is generated, so I am awarding points.

thanks for you help
