Verified this is fixed in CF2016 Update 1 (build 2016.0.01.298513). Thanks!, -Aaron

This is broken again on ColdFusion 11 Update 13. It can be seen on try.cfm as functional on every engine but ColdFusion 11. Do you guys have regression test suites for these? Here is another example: <cfscript> info = QueryNew("Toast","varchar",["milk"]); queryAddColumn( info, "size" ,[1]); for( i = 1; i <= info.recordCount; i++ ){ querySetCell( info, "size", 0, i ); } for(vendor in info){ } </cfscript>

@Aaron Am I reading this correctly that this was only fixed in CF2016?

Hi Justin, I'd only verified this on CF2016. I'd reach out to for clarification regarding CF11. Thanks!, -Aaron

Hi Adobe, If you see this, could you perhaps add a comment indicating if this was fixed or not in CF11? If only that FixedInBuild field was always used =P Thanks!, -Aaron

Hi Adobe, Please disregard. I see this comment in Slack: "The fix for CF 11 would get included in the next update for CF 11, i.e, Update 14, which is due in April." Thanks!, -Aaron
