Dumping A Select/Insert Query

I have a query that does a select/insert:

INTO myTable (...)
SELECT (...)
FROM theOtherTable

I was trying to figure out what was going on in this query but doing a simple cfdump of ‘data’ was throwing an error (btw this is on CF8).   Reading the docs I noticed there is a “results” attribute:

Specifies a name for the structure in which cfquery returns the result variables.

So I modified my query to add a result and then dumped that and it worked!

<cfquery name="data" result="testdata">
<cfdump var="#testdata#">

Hopefully this is helpful to others…
