Build dynamic table output

I am trying to figure out a way on how to display the output of a database query in coldfusion
a bit different. Instead of having data displayed in rows and the columnheader is the field
name, i want to have the field names in the rows and each record show be a seperate column.

Like this

User ID           00               01              02
Name             Tom            Steve         Mike
Gender           M                M                M

What is the best way to achieve this ?

Thanks

The key is to refer to each query value using the structure format, that way you don't have to do the traditional CFOUTPUT loop, but can control your loop.

Reference name using    myQuery['name'][kk]   where kk is the row number and the column name is in quotes 'name'

So now you can loop across the row and have each column with a different record, like this..

<tr>
  <td>Name</td>
<cfloop index="kk" from=1 to="#myQuery.recordCount#">
    <td>#myQuery['name'][kk]#</td>
</cfloop>
</tr>

do the same for the other columns..
