How to convert dynamically a query row to a list, in Coldfusion

Hi experts,

I have to loop into a query and to output data to a csv file.

My problem is that I want to get the full record (row) and have the different values separate by a semi-colon.
But I can just do something like the following, because there are commas into the data.
<cfset variables.values = replace(variables.getData.currentRow, ",", ";")>

Do you know a trick to achieve this ? Thanks a lot.

Here is the code I’m trying to use :
<cfquery name="variables.getData" datasource="joecool_web">
	select * from jcstktabl where jcid = '#listgetAt('#variables.index#',1, ';')#'
</cfquery>
<!--- build the product’s file --->
<cfif variables.getData.RecordCount NEQ 0>
	<cfset variables.values = replace(variables.getData.currentRow, ",", ";")>
	<cffile action="append" file="#variables.productsFile#" output="#variables.values#" addnewline="true" charset="iso-8859-1">
</cfif>

Not sure what you're trying to do here, the value of getData.currentRow is a number indicating the record number of the current row; 1,2,3.... etc.

<cfset variables.values = replace(variables.getData.currentRow, ",", ";")>

You may want something like this to create a quoted, comma delimited list..

<cfset variables.values = QuotedValueList(variables.getData)>

Hi gdemaria,

Indeed, I misunderstood the currentrow function.

Knowing this, coupled with this infos (source), I have correct the statement as follow :
<cfquery name="variables.getData" datasource="joecool_web">
	select * from jcstktabl where jcid = '#listgetAt('#variables.index#',1, ';')#'
</cfquery>
<!--- build the product’s file --->
<cfif variables.getData.RecordCount NEQ 0>
	<cfset variables.values = "">
	<cfloop index="variables.ColumnName" list="#variables.getData.ColumnList#">
		<cfset variables.values &= variables.getData[variables.ColumnName][variables.getData.currentRow]>
	</cfloop>
	<cffile action="append" file="#variables.productsFile#" output="#variables.values#" addnewline="true" charset="iso-8859-1">
</cfif>
