<tip type="ColdFusion- output a query in a custom order">

lets say you want to run a query, but need to output it in a custom order
not obtainable with ORDER BY.
(you may have a list of keys from a verity search, for instance, and want to
preserve the order)

you can do it like this in ColdFusion:

<cfset list = "9,3,6,1,7,3,2,4,8,5">

<cfquery name="qTest" datasource="ds">

SELECT * FROM tableName
WHERE PrimKey IN (#list#)


<cfloop list="#list#" index="i">
<br />#qTest.PrimKey[i]#
