Hi,

I have a table called Major update that has the following fields

AppID       AppName                                                                     MajorUpgradeCost
9	name1                                                                 	<$100K
10	name2                                                                           $100K to $500K
13	name3                                                                 	$500K to $1M
14	name4                                                                 	$500K to $1M
18	name5                                                                            $1M to $5M
20	name6                                                                 	>$5M
22	name7                                                                 	<$100K
23	name8                                                                 	NULL
24	name9                                                                             NULL

Open in new window



I am trying to just loop thru the query and display the MajorUpgradeCost

the problem that I am having is that AppID 9 is not displaying '<$100K'  because of this operator
<

It display the operater > fine but not this < and I am not sure why!


<cfoutput query="FiveYearPlan"> 

#FiveYearPlan.MajorUpgradeCost#

</cfoutput>

It doesn't display because the browser thinks it's an HTML tag.   You can replace it with this symbol...  &lt;

You could also wrap it in <pre> </pre> tags although that makes the font monospaced as well (such as courier)
