That isn't a legal form field name... if you're trying to do an array-style form, just append a number to it..


  <input name="bodyIDList#counter#"  id="bodyIDList#counter#" value="">"

Neither.  CF treats it like any other form field. The value is a string.  But because it's not a valid variable name, you need to use array notation to access it.

     <cfset value = FORM["bodyIDList[]"]>
