display list of states, with list of projects under each state

ColdFusion 9
MS SQL Server 2012

I should know this, and have done this before, but can't think of the solution right now.

On this page: http://www.doivista.org/oursites.cfm

I need to display a list of states, with a list of projects under each state. Right now, the states are not grouped.

Here's the code, below. Thanks as always. =)

Eric

<cfquery name="getProjects" datasource="#application.datasource#">
SELECT
projectID,
ProjectName,
OSMVISTA,
State,
Archive
FROM #REQUEST.ProjectsTable#
ORDER BY State, ProjectName, Archive
</cfquery>


<!--- Loop through project data records --->
 <cfoutput query="getProjects" group="state">
 
 <cfloop query="getProjects">
<p><strong>#getProjects.State#</strong></p>
<p><a href="/showProjectRecord.cfm?ProjectID=#val(getProjects.ProjectID)#">#getProjects.ProjectName#</a> (OSM/VISTA Volunteer: #getProjects.OSMVISTA#)</p>
</cfloop>

 </cfoutput>

The "State" header should be within the outer loop. Also, use <cfoutput> instead of <cfloop> for the inner loop.  

Untested, but something like this:
<!--- Loop through project data records --->
 <cfoutput query="getProjects" group="state">
     <p><strong>#getProjects.State#</strong></p>
 
      <cfoutput>
         <p>
              <a href="/showProjectRecord.cfm?ProjectID=#val(getProjects.ProjectID)#">#getProjects.ProjectName#</a> (OSM/VISTA Volunteer: #getProjects.OSMVISTA#)
        </p>
     </cfoutput>

 </cfoutput>
