I keep hitting walls and it continues to place my job security on the line.

If you look over I managed to make the connection but the page displays nothing. It's blank. I have searched using various search engines but cannot find the solution that works.

Are there special display tags in ColdFusion to display the contact list or is it not retrieving the contact list at all? It will be use for our company's Intranet site we are implementing in the near future.

Here is my code:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<html xmlns="">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Employee Directory</title>

<cfexchangeConnection action="open"  
    server="" FQDM
<cfexchangecontact action="get" name="myContacts" connection="test">
<cfexchangeConnection action="close" connection="test"/>


Could it be the "name= "myContacts"" is the wrong path?

Thanks. I really need to move forward with this for I fear it will be my last chance given to redeem myself for the job position I am in.
