To create a user administration module in Cold Fusion, you would need to create templates that both provides a means to search for or select a user record, and updates the database using an update query. In this example, I created a form that uses a link with a URL parameter to select a user. Other methods would include a search block that would send information to a SELECT query.
In administer.cfm, there is a select query that selects the users in the USERS table. In the tag, the result is displayed in a table. A link to getuser.cfm was created, with userid as a parameter. When one of these links is clicked, a SELECT query in getuser.cfm is executed.
Below is the source code for getuser.cfm. In the tag, a select query is used to retrieve the records from the database. In the WHERE clause, the parameter passed from administer.cfm is indicted by #URL.
