Verified this behavior when cfgrid is nested inside cfform. ColdFusion version 11,0,03,292866.

Another note (regarding a workaround): using format="flash" for the grid (and the cfform) does not have a problem.

We are planning on migrating from CF9 to 10/11 and are coming against this error as a roadblock for our plans.

This bug makes unuseful several functions in some of our end-user systems. If it is not corrected we will have to remove cfgrid with an alternative, which will demand time, money and more end-user-expectations managing. This vote would help to give this problem more priority and focus in order to include its solution in the next ColdFusion11 hotfix.

The same error was gotten on ColdFusion 11 Update 4 (11,0,04,293328) and Java version 1.7.0_55 on IIS7.5 on Windows Server 2008 R2 64bit. This occurred using cfgrid with HTML format and two drop-down list columns.

Well, this is interesting. I am experiencing this error in CF11, WITH hotfix 5 applied (someone else applied it to the server before I started working here). I also verified that the problem does not occur with format="flash", but the html format is the one we want to use. The biggest problem we face is that there is no proxy available to do an automatic update.

Also, posting files on ftp and dropbox sites DOES NOTHING when the CF admin doesn't have a login to the sites. Sometimes I hate you guys so much. We spend good money for your software and you make it so hard to actually use it. :-)

Dave, Can you share the code with which you can observe the error, and the error as well. Or are you using the test code mentioned in one of the preceding comments. Can you also pls. share the update level and build no. of your CF server from the settings summary in the CF administrator.

Thank you for looking at this. Please let us know the status of this bug. I upgraded from CF11 v6 to v7. I had the original error before I upgraded, but it seems to have gone away. New problems are occurring. I may not be using cfgridupdate correctly. In an email, I attached: 1. Sample code (cfgrid.cfm) 2. Log files 3. Windows 7 Pro, SP1, 64-bit OS 4. Setting summary from CFAdmin Errors: 1. If the primary key is in cfgrid which is needed for updates, then the insert will not work. 2. The updates do not make the changes to the correct modified row. 3. Sometimes it randomly duplicates entries Browser console: Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'xtype' of undefined It looks like some of the fields are being entered multiple times if the primary key is in a cfgridcolumn: __CFGRID__frm__artwork __CFGRID__EDIT__=3ARTID[1]YARTNAME[1]YRATING[1]Y4U[1]2[1]2[1]Another Piece[1]Another Piece[1]11[1]5U[1]5[1]5[1]Pretty[1]Pretty[1]12[1]3U[1]8[1]8[1]Ugly[1]Ugly[1]15[1]2U[1]8[1]8[1]Ugly[1]Ugly[1]18[1]4 If I remove the primary key from cfgridcolumn, then the following error occurs: Primary key(s) artid not found. The cfgridupdate tag cannot update or delete the row because it cannot find the primary key(s) artid in the cfgrid form fields for table art in datasource cpindexSQL. The error occurred inC:/inetpub/wwwroot/ipmcenters_org/CropProfiles/admin/tests/cfgrid.cfm: line 2 1 : <CFIF IsDefined("form.gridEntered")> 2 : <cfgridupdate grid="artwork" tablename="art" datasource="#application.dsn#"> 3 : </CFIF> 4 :
