Bind cfinput to cfselect on change in coldfusion 9

Hello -

I'm trying to bind a cfinput to a url based on two changing cfselects. I keep getting an error: "Bind failed, element not found: BillToMonth [Enable debugging by adding 'cfdebug' to your URL parameters to see more information]" (I get it for both elements, BillToMonth and MeterNo)

However, I use that specific variable when binding to a cfdiv on the same page. If I assign values and bind on load, then I get the suspected values returned appropriately.

Here's the code:
<cfajaximport tags = "cfdiv,cfgrid,cfform">
<cfset UserInfoCFC=CreateObject("Component","#pathtofunctions#.UserInfo")>
<cfset ChargeInfo=CreateObject("Component","#pathtofunctions#.CompleteInfo")>

<cfset qryUserInfo=UserInfoCFC.functionUserInfo(Session.MM_UserID)>
<cfset qryLastChargeDate=ChargeInfo.functionLastChargeDate(qryUserInfo.SiteID)>
<cfset qryActiveUtilities=ChargeInfo.functionActiveUtilities(qryUserInfo.SiteID)>
<cfset qryBuildings=ChargeInfo.functionSiteBuildings(qryUserInfo.SiteID)>
<cfset qryMeterNumbers=ChargeInfo.functionMeterNumbers(qryUserInfo.SiteID)>

<cfset pageTitle = "Resident Billing -  #qryUserInfo.CommunityName# Bill Entry">


<cftry>
  <cfset dateone = DateFormat(DateAdd("m", 1, "#qryLastChargeDate.MonthEndDate#"),"mm/dd/yyyy")>
  <cfset dateone = #DATEFORMAT(DateAdd("d",-1,DateAdd("m",1,CreateDate(Year(dateone),Month(dateone),1))),"mm/dd/yyyy")#>
  <cfset datetwo = DateFormat(DateAdd("m", 2, "#qryLastChargeDate.MonthEndDate#"),"mm/dd/yyyy")>
  <cfset datetwo = #DATEFORMAT(DateAdd("d",-1,DateAdd("m",1,CreateDate(Year(datetwo),Month(datetwo),1))),"mm/dd/yyyy")#>
  <cfset datethree = DateFormat(DateAdd("m", 3, "#qryLastChargeDate.MonthEndDate#"),"mm/dd/yyyy")>
  <cfset datethree = #DATEFORMAT(DateAdd("d",-1,DateAdd("m",1,CreateDate(Year(datethree),Month(datethree),1))),"mm/dd/yyyy")#>
  <cfset datefour = DateFormat(DateAdd("m", 4, "#qryLastChargeDate.MonthEndDate#"),"mm/dd/yyyy")>
  <cfset datefour = #DATEFORMAT(DateAdd("d",-1,DateAdd("m",1,CreateDate(Year(datefour),Month(datefour),1))),"mm/dd/yyyy")#>
<cfcatch>
  <cfset dateone = DateFormat(#DateAdd("d",-1,DateAdd("m",1,CreateDate(Year(Now()),Month(now())-1,1)))#,"mm/dd/yyyy")>
  <cfset datetwo = DateFormat(#DateAdd("d",-1,DateAdd("m",1,CreateDate(Year(Now()),Month(now()),1)))#,"mm/dd/yyyy")>
  <cfset datethree = DateFormat(#DateAdd("d",-1,DateAdd("m",1,CreateDate(Year(Now()),Month(now())+1,1)))#,"mm/dd/yyyy")>
  <cfset datefour = DateFormat(#DateAdd("d",-1,DateAdd("m",1,CreateDate(Year(Now()),Month(now())+2,1)))#,"mm/dd/yyyy")>

</cfcatch>
</cftry>

<cfoutput>
