How do I get the values from one column in a query?
If you need to retrieve the values from one column in a query, ColdFusion provides the valueList() function. It will return every value from that column. Here is an example:
<cfquery name="getPeople" datasource="people"> select name, age, rank from people </cfquery> <cfset allNames = valueList(getPeople.name)>
Note that valueList does not take a string, but the actual query and column variable.
