faking a form scope - Coldfusion - Advanced Techniques

I'm setting up dynamic variables that need to mimic a form scope. currently, I'm setting them like: <cfset FORM[#CurrentColumnName#] = #trim(RowArray[x])#> This was fine, but lately seems to be causing problems. Can someone tell me if this is incorrect. I need to reference the variables like "form.firstname". The "firstname" part comes from a table, so I need to set this dynamically. If there is a better way, please let me know. Thanks....

    That is fine. However you do not need any of those #s in there.

    ie <cfset FORM[CurrentColumnName] = Trim(RowArray[x])>

    You might have better luck with this syntax:

    <cfset "FORM.#CurrentColumnName#" = Trim(RowArray[x])>
