If that is CF specific, great.  But that SQL structure, as such, is dangerous to your intent in a multiuser environment unless CF handles the multiple queries internally as a single query and presents it to SQL Server as such  I'd be a bit dubious about it for a while, until such time as you can reliabley ascertain that it really does what you want.

Thanks people ... I googled the Internet again and came up with a
solution different that what has been suggested or I'd seen before:

<cfquery datasource="dsn" name="the_query">
   INSERT INTO table_name([columns])
   SELECT whatever_id = @@IDENTITY

This results in #the_query.whatever_id# being the ID of the row that
was just created. I've no idea what those no count things are doing
and I don't see the syntax of SELECT [variable] = @@IDENTITY anywhere
in the SQL 7 books online; but I don't have to understand it, just so
my magic electric box does!
