Problem updating fileds with URL parameter

When I update with the second form, it runs but the fields do not update.  If I change '#URL.ID#' to the id number that is in the url it does update the fields.  What am I missing?

Thanks
<cfparam name="URL.ID" default="">
<cfparam name="FORM.Firm" default="">
 <cfparam name="FORM.GROW" default="N"> 
<!--- Create an empty error string --->
<cfset strError = "">

<!--- If the form is submitted --->
<cfif isDefined("FORM.Submit")>
 
<!---    <cfset strError = ""> --->
 <cfquery  NAME="Added" datasource="#datasource#">
	        UPDATE SubscriptionIA
			SET Firm='#FORM.Firm#',
				GROW='#FORM.GROW#'
			WHERE ID='#URL.ID#'
            </cfquery>

what is the action of your <FORM tag?  

You can remove the action completely so the page calls itself with all the same paramters, that will keep the parameter in tact.

It is

<cfform action="#cgi.script_name#" method="post">

That's why, you're losing your query string variables.  

Did it work after removing the action?



You can also do it this way...

<cfform action="#cgi.script_name#?#cgi.query_string#" method="post">
