Hi. My CFOUTPUT does not group on column PublicationYear the way that I think it should. =) How can I edit my query or my output to get this result:

"CEP scheduled no meetings in year 2011."

rather than this result:

"CEP scheduled no meetings in year 20112011201120112011201120112011201120112011201120112011201120112011."

I am guessing I cannot group variable #url.selectedYear# on column PublicationYear because variable #url.selectedYear# is not referenced in query getDocumentYears.

Thanks as always for advice. I've been puzzling over this task for a while today.


Query, getDocumentYears:

<!--- query to select document publication years --->
<cfquery name="getDocumentYears" datasource="#application.datasource#">
SELECT DISTINCT Year(DocumentPublicationDate) AS PublicationYear
FROM tbl_CEP_Documents
ORDER BY PublicationYear DESC


<p>CEP scheduled no meetings in year <cfoutput query="getDocumentYears" group="PublicationYear" groupcasesensitive="no">#url.selectedYear#</cfoutput>.</p>
