CFModules don't have access to the Application scope - they require the Request Scope, or you can pass them in manually. Most of the insight I've gained is through unfortunate experience, and wading through the massive amounts of email generated over the years from the CF-talk mailing list (http://www.houseoffusion.com/index.cfm?sidebar=lists ). These are also mirrored on at news://fuseware.com/cf-talk if you prefer using a newsreader. The Cold Fusion Forums (http://forums.allaire.com/DevConf/index.cfm) is also a good resource. The manuals and Forta books are invaluable, but the lists, newsgroups, and forums keeps you up on the in-depth details.

It does, thank you. May I ask how you know this? Many people seem to have an insight into the inner workings of CF that I can't find in any of the reference manuals (and yes, my Ben Forta books are on the way from the bookstore right now). Is there another source that you would suggest that I look up to acquire this class of info? > If you really need to use cfmodule, put your datasource > variable in the application scope.

Interestingly enough, the fusebox white paper suggest that cfmoduled templates don't have access to application variables. I might have misread. I'll look into that again. > hope that helps I sure does.
