Building Advanced Custom Server Behaviors

Although useful for simple tasks, such as returning a recordset to Flash, custom server behaviors can also provide more advanced functionality when used with multiple blocks of code with parameters. In fact, you can combine ColdFusion custom tags with server behaviors to create sophisticated functionality.

This section will use two custom tags found on the ColdFusion Exchange on the Macromedia web site (www.macromedia.com). The first custom tag, CF_ReportInWord, takes a recordset and dynamically generates a Word document. The second custom tag, CF_Query2Excel, takes a recordset and dynamically generates an Excel worksheet.
