I am trying to use cfloop to get data from database. I want to put data in the value inside input text tag.

MyVar is a variable and it goes from 1 to 5.
 
How can I get value from database.
 
<input name="AfterFunding#MyVar#T" type="text" value="#others.AfterFunding#MyVar#T#">

So this tag should be <input name="AfterFunding1T" type="text" value="#others.AfterFunding1T#"> and it goes until 5T. the name is working but the value doesn't recognize it because there are two sets of ##.

Use array notation. Since it's a query object, you'll also need to supply a query row number

ie       #queryName["someFixedName"& counterVariableHere ][ rowNumber ]


.. translated, something like this, where "1" is the first row of the query

     value="#others["AfterFunding"& MyVar &"T"][1]#"

... or you're using cfloop query, use currentRow instead of hard coding the row number

<cfloop query="others">
     <input value="#others["AfterFunding"& MyVar &"T"][ currentRow]#" ....>
</cfloop>
