Try using 'is' instead of the equal (=) sign.

Hi,

Couple of things:
- You don't need the .currentrow and the closing </cfif> needs to be inside the td.
- The correct operator inside the if statement is eq for =.

Code below should work.

<cfoutput>
            <cfloop query="SQL">
<td>#Value_1#</td>
<td>#Value_2#</td>
<td>#Value_3#</td>
<td>  #Value_4#  </td>  <!-- What i want to do here is for value 5 -->
<td><cfif  Value_4 eq "X"> #Value_5# <cfelse>#Value_6#</cfif> </td>
</tr>
</cfloop>
</cfoutput>

Get that end of table cell out of cfelse branch:

<td>
<cfif  #Value_4# EQ  'X'>
   #Value_5#  
<cfelse>
   #Value_6#
</cfif>
</td>
</tr>

And remove the .currentrow from column value in the cfif compare.

If your value_4 and X are strings, then use compare function

<td>
<cfif NOT compareNoCase('#value_4#','X')>
	#value_5#
<cfelse>
	#value_6#
</cfif>
</td>
</tr>
