Create a test script and dump the server scope. It'll contain the version
<cfdump var="#server#">

Is it standard Adobe ColdFusion? Because I don't see any reason it shouldn't work under CF8. Unless maybe

A) The host disabled that tag OR
B) The tag name is mispelled or it's not contained within a CFFORM

But if it were A) I think you'd be seeing a different error message and I just tested it w/CF9 and it works. So I'm back to wondering about the version on the host running...

Yep. (Though you don't really need the <cfoutput>) This works perfectly w/cf9 and there's no reason it shouldn't work with cf8 too. So I think it's a problem with your host's version. What does the dump say exactly?

btw - you could just a regular html <textarea>. you don't have to use <cftextarea> unless you need one of it's extra features.

<cfset DisplayCVITool.ISSUES= "test">
<cfform>
<cftextarea name="ISSUES" value="#DisplayCVITool.ISSUES#" rows="3" cols="54" id="ISSUES"></cftextarea>
</cfform>

should contact Allaire Support.

Hm... Allaire hasn't owned CF for a lo-ong time.  So I don't think you're using CF8.

Bottom line, if you're not running MX7 or higher, you can't use cftextarea.  You'll have to use a regular <textarea> instead.

Lol... I think you're misreading my responses. I've given the solution twice ;-)

ie Just use a regular TEXTAREA ;-)  

Note, it's not the same as CFTEXTAREA

as agx suggested, use the standard HTML version, just like this..

<textarea name="issue" rows="3" cols="50">#dsiplayCVITool.issue#</textarea>
