both the above are failing, if i try, think it like this

<cfquery name="getinfo">
select id
				from dbo.table1 with(nolock)
				where cid = 622
</cfquery>
<cfif GetInfo.id NEQ arguments.id>			
update table1
					set id = #arguments.id#
					where cid = 	622
</cfif>

I see no need to select the id first then update.  A single update should work fine.

Can you post sample data and expected results based on the arguments.id value selected?
