replace two variable in file content

Hello,  I have a file creation script that works great when i only have to replace one variable,  however, i need to replace two variables and can't get the script to work.  I know that what i have now replaces CC with XX.  I have also tried several other tires.  

What i really need is in the file with the variables to have the url="CC" be replaced with the qlist.cid and the xx be replace with  qlist.scndtgry_ID.

if i remove either one of the cc or xx from the replace the one that is left gets the correct nubmer.  i just really need both.  

hopefully this makes sense.

thank you.

here is the code for the creation,
<cfset CC = qList.CID>
 <cfset XX = qList.scndctgry_ID>
<cfset ses_fileContents = replace(ses_fileContents_original, "CC" , "XX", #qList.CID# & #qList.scndctgry_ID#)> 

here is the file with the variables

<cfset url.category = "CC">
<cfset url.secondary = "XX">
<cfinclude template="SubMain.cfm">

Open in new window
