query of queries have very limited allowed functions. You can't even do things like

left(response)


What are you trying to do?

I think the closest you can get is to use LIKE.  Don't forget QoQ's are case sensitive too

WHERE  lower(response) LIKE <cfqueryparam value"%üpendingü%" cfsqltype="cf_sql_varchar">

Yep. IIRC, the only functions QoQ's supports are:  

* UPPER()
* LOWER()
* CAST()

Maybe one more, but nothing else.

Because CF code can't run inside a database.  The two are totally separate. CF knows nothing about SQL and your db knows nothing about CFML.

When you run a cfquery, the CF server first translates all the variables/functions:

<cfset something = "john"
<cfquery name="q" ...>
        SELECT Columns FROM Table WHERE ColumnName = '#something#'
</cfquery>

into plain text values.  Then plugs them into the SQL string:

      SELECT Columns FROM Table WHERE ColumnName = 'john'

Finally it sends the plain text sql on to the db.  The db never sees any CF variables or functions. They're evaluated long before the SQL ever makes it to the db.

ok, i think i missing something here :

SELECT {fn Left(Title, 50)} As ShortTitle
  FROM mytable

Left is also a CF Function and Left is also in sql [so probably it is referring to the scalar function which is present in sql]

correct me if i am wrong

Correct.  Though they both have left() functions, that statement is using your database's left() function - not the CF #left()# function.

Not that it really matters but I'd point out that my answer that QofQ can't do that is correct....

I agree with Sid. The question was "what's causing this error".  The correct answer is QoQ's don't support it. My remarks just elaborate on that, but the correct answer was already given.
