Associates a query object with a result set returned by a stored procedure. Other ColdFusion tags, such as cfoutput and cftable, use this query object to access the result set. This tag is nested within a cfstoredproc tag.


Database manipulation tags


    name = "query name" 
    maxRows = "number" 
    resultSet = "1-n">
Note: You can specify this tag’s attributes in an attributeCollection attribute whose value is a structure. Specify the structure name in the attributeCollection attribute and use the tag’s attribute names as structure keys.

Name for the query result set.



-1 (All)

Maximum number of rows returned in result set.




Names one result set, if stored procedure returns more than one.


To enable access to data returned by the stored procedure, specify one or more cfprocresult tags. If the stored procedure returns more than one result set, use the resultSet attribute to specify which of the stored procedure’s result sets to return.

The resultSet attribute must be unique within the scope of the cfstoredproc tag. If you specify a result set twice, the second occurrence overwrites the first.

CFML supports Oracle 8 and 9 Reference Cursor type, which passes a parameter by reference. Parameters that are passed this way can be allocated and deallocated from memory within the execution of one application. To use reference cursors in packages or stored procedures, use the cfprocresult tag. This causes the ColdFusion JDBC database driver to put Oracle reference cursors into a result set. (You cannot use this method with Oracle’s ThinClient JDBC drivers.)


<!--- This example executes a Sybase stored procedure that returns three result sets, two 
    of which we want. The stored procedure returns status code and one output parameter, which 
    we display. We use named notation for parameters. --->
