populating insert query with data from 2D array in Coldfusion

Last Modified: 2013-12-24
Hi All,

I'm trying to insert the contents of a 2D array into a database. I'm having a hell of a time getting it to work. Below is what I've tried, but it gives an error (The value coldfusion.runtime.Array cannot be converted to a number.). What should I be doing?

<cfloop array="#measureValues#" index="i" >
        <cfquery name="updateAss_DRDP_line" datasource="#application.dsn#" username="#application.username#" password="#application.password#" > 
INSERT INTO CDP_Ass_DRDP_line ( AssessmentID, MeasureID , Value1, Value2, Value3, Value4, Value5, Value6, UnableToRate,  ) VALUES ( <cfqueryparam cfsqltype="cf_sql_int" value="#attributes.AssessmentID#" /> , 
<cfqueryparam cfsqltype="cf_sql_integer" value="#measureValues[i][8]#" /> , 
<cfqueryparam cfsqltype="cf_sql_integer" value="#measureValues[i][1]#" /> , 
<cfqueryparam cfsqltype="cf_sql_integer" value="#measureValues[i][2]#" /> ,
<cfqueryparam cfsqltype="cf_sql_integer" value="#measureValues[i][3]#" /> ,
<cfqueryparam cfsqltype="cf_sql_integer" value="#measureValues[i][4]#" /> ,
<cfqueryparam cfsqltype="cf_sql_integer" value="#measureValues[i][5]#" /> ,
<cfqueryparam cfsqltype="cf_sql_integer" value="#measureValues[i][6]#" /> ,
<cfqueryparam cfsqltype="cf_sql_integer" value="#measureValues[i][7]#" /> )
