I am trying to query the same table in multiple databases.  When my code attempts to query the second database in my list I get the following error:
        Datasource DB1 could not be found.

If I change the order in my DSNList my code always fails at the second database.  
<cfset DSNList = "db1, db2, db3">



<cfloop list="#DSNList#" index="defDSN" delimiters=",">

	<cfoutput>

	[#defDSN#]:

	</cfoutput>

	<CFQUERY NAME="getCategory" DATASOURCE="#defDSN#">

		SELECT      *

		FROM        thread_categories

	</cfquery>

	

	<br />

</cfloop>

You will need to remove those spaces in the list.
