ColdFusion Database Record Comparison -- How?

Hello Experts:
I am in a jam today as I have been hitting my head against the wall for a couple of days now.

Simply:
I have an access database with two fields -- SCRUB NSCRUB

I need to take the values one at a time that are in NSCRUB and see if they exist in SCRUB, if they do, then just show to screen "Record Exist: "data in the record"

It is really that simple. I have written a cfquery and cfloop and the best I can get is for the code to run until it finds the record from NSCRUB in SCRUB, and that is it, it will never go onto the next record in NSCRUB and try to find it. It just stops at the first record and doesn't try to find any records past the first.

I can past code, but really it is all of 8 lines and not sure it would even help???

Thank you so much!!

Assuming both columns contain simple values, it could be as simple as a self join:

SELECT s.Scrub TheValueThatExistsInScrub
FROM   YourTable n INNER JOIN YourTable s ON s.Scrub = n.NScrub

Sample Data
Row | NSCRUB | SCRUB
1 | 9   | 1  
2 | 6   | 4  
3 | 18  | 6  
4 | 17  | 19  
5 | 53  | 42  
6 | 42  | 85  

Result:
Row | THEVALUETHATEXISTSINSCRUB
1 | 6  
2 | 42

BTW, this seems like more of a SQL question. However, for ColdFusion specific stuff, you will get more attention from the CF experts if you include one of the CF zones in your question topics, such as
