How do I cfset a variable in cfquery so the values will be available in a pull down in a cfgrid

<cfquery name="Get_modality" datasource="xxx">
            SELECT    TDA_UIC, TYPE, ORG_ID_EM
                  FROM      MRE_TARA_MODALITIES
</cfquery>

    <cfset ModalityType = "TYPE">

<cfform>  
<cfgrid>
<cfgridcolumn name="MODALITY"  header="Modality(E)"  width="90" values="#ModalityType#"/>

Like this:
<cfquery name="Get_modality" datasource="xxx">
            SELECT    TDA_UIC, [TYPE] as ModalityType, ORG_ID_EM
                  FROM      MRE_TARA_MODALITIES
</cfquery>

<cfform>   
<cfgrid name="myGrid" query="Get_modality">
  <cfgridcolumn name="ModalityType"  header="Modality(E)"  width="90" />     
</cfgrid>
</cfform>

for using the any Cfset variable you set you had to specify a query

Sorry my fault, I wasn't detailed enough.  Basically I have a main cfgrid query called getICS but wanting to have a pull down within the cfgrid extracting the variable from from another query (Get_modality), so I can insert the value from "Get_modality.Type" into "MODALITY"


<cfquery name="Get_modality" datasource="xxx">
            SELECT    TDA_UIC, TYPE, ORG_ID_EM
            FROM      MRE_TARA_MODALITIES
</cfquery>
   
    <cfset ModalityType = "TYPE">


<cfquery name="getICS" datasource="xxx">
    SELECT   *.*
    FROM MRE_TARA_LIST
</cfquery>

<cfset args = structNew()>
<cfset args.name = "ICS_Grid">
<cfset args.format = "html">
<cfset args.query = "getICS">
<cfset args.stripeRows = true>
<cfset args.selectmode = "edit">
<cfset args.onchange = "cfc:TARA_LIST.editData({cfgridaction},{cfgridrow},{cfgridchanged})">
   
     <cfform>
     
        <cfgrid attributeCollection="#args#">
<cfgridcolumn name="TARA_ID" header="MOD ID" display="no" width="40"/>
<cfgridcolumn name="ORG_ID_EM"  display="no" header="DODAAC"  width="80"/>
<cfgridcolumn name="TDA_UIC"  header="TDA UIC"  display="no" width="80"/>
<cfgridcolumn name="MODALITY"  header="Modality(E)"  width="90" values="#ModalityType#"/>        
<cfgridcolumn name="LOCATION"  header="Location(E)"  width="90"/>
        </cfgrid>
                         
     </cfform>

You set the ModalityType like this:
<cfquery name="Get_modality" datasource="xxx">
            SELECT    TDA_UIC, TYPE, ORG_ID_EM
            FROM      MRE_TARA_MODALITIES
</cfquery>
<cfset ModalityType=ArrayNew(1) >
<cfloop query="Get_modality" >   
    <cfset ArrayAppend(ModalityType,TYPE) >
</cfloop>

Thanks Zvonko, that works - the ModalityType values are loading however I receive the "Complex object types cannot be converted to simple values." error on the line in the cfgrid

  <cfgrid attributeCollection="#args#">
<cfgridcolumn name="MODALITY"  header="Modality(E)"  width="90" values="#ModalityType#"/>  
    </cfgrid>

Full error description:
Complex object types cannot be converted to simple values.  
The expression has requested a variable or an intermediate expression result as a simple value, however, the result cannot be converted to a simple value. Simple values are strings, numbers, boolean values, and date/time values. Queries, arrays, and COM objects are examples of complex values.
The most likely cause of the error is that you are trying to use a complex value as a simple one. For example, you might be trying to use a query variable in a cfif tag

Thanks for your help!!

Zvonko:  I replaced:

<cfset ModalityType=ArrayNew(1) >
<cfloop query="Get_modality" >   
    <cfset ArrayAppend(ModalityType,TYPE) >
</cfloop>

with the following and it worked, (cfgrid remains the same)
<cfset ModalityType = ValueList(Get_modality.TYPE)>
