Hi, i have the following CFC

<cffunction access="public" name="myrecords" returntype="any">
      <cfquery datasource="#dsn#" name="abc">
      SELECT * from mytable
      </cfquery>
    <cfif abc.recordcount>
          <cfsavecontent variable="mySelect">
              <cfset str = '<select name="valSelect" id="valSelect">
                        <cfoutput query="abc">
                            <option value="#abc#">#abc#</option>
                      </cfoutput>
                  </select>'>
        </cfsavecontent>
    <cfelse>
          <cfsavecontent variable="xyz">
              <cfset str = "No data returned">
        </cfsavecontent>

<cffunction access="public" name="myrecords" returntype="any">
      <cfquery datasource="#dsn#" name="yourQueryName">
      SELECT * from mytable
      </cfquery>
    <cfif yourQueryName.recordcount>
          <cfsavecontent variable="myReturnStr">
              <select name="valSelect" id="valSelect">
                      <cfoutput query="yourQueryName">
                            <option value="#mycolum1#">#mycolum2#</option>
                      </cfoutput>
              </select>'>
        </cfsavecontent>
    <cfelse>
              <cfset myReturnStr = "No data returned">
    </cfif>
    <cfreturn myReturnStr>
</cffunction>

<cfset myStr=myrecords() >

<cfdump var="#myStr#" >

Another Query should i Continue is:

I am getting data as:
 
1            Active
2            Inactive
3            Progress
4            Complete
5            Active + Complete

Now the above 4 i get from my query,
Regarding the 5th how can i Combine the 4th and 1st. I though of using Lists but how i will find the matching record of 1 isActive and 4 is Complete with a list, becoz i do not want to hard Code it!

what do you want to put into the value="" parameter when you combine Active and Complete ?

Also, how do you identify active and complete options?   Since you do not have an Order By clause on your select statement, the order could change at any time... then you cannot be guaranteed of having the 1st and 4th be the two values you want.   You need to add an order by or hard code the IDs, or add a flag to the table to identify which two you want to combine
