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.
After the update is processed, a message is displayed. I also included the userinclude.cfm so that you could update another record.
Creating a module to update records utilizes update queries, as well as selecting records using a URL parameter. A search box could also be utilized to search for the records. These techniques could be used anytime there is a need to search for and update a record from a browser.
