Deterime Where A Scope Variable is populated - Coldfusion - Advanced Techniques

I'm trying to determine where a scope "request" variable is populated. I have traced it all the way back to the begining index.cfm form and the scope variable already had the value set. Does anyone know where scope variables could be set prior to the begining index.cfm THANKS....

    I'm trying to determine where a scope "request" variable is populated.

    the scope variable already had the value set. Does anyone know where
    scope variables could be set prior to the begining index.cfm
    THANKS.

    It's probably being set in Application.cfm.

    It appears at one time the application.cfm was used to set these variables.
    However, it appears the data is coming from the (sql server) database.
    There is no querying from the application.cfm database.
    Any ideas how it is populated this way ???

    How do you determine what is called first (index or application.cfm) it
    appears that index.cfm start the web page

    If there is an Application.cfm file it will always be run before the cold fusion page that is being loaded, in this case index.cfm

    As zoe states, Application.cfm will always be run before any .cfm file.
    Furthermore, If ColdFusion does not find Application.cfm in the current
    directory (the directory of index.cfm), it will go up one level and look for
    one there. If it doesn't find one, it goes up another level, and so on. Make
    sure you don't have a stray Application.cfm up the chain.
