Hi,

Just recently I started this tutorial for CFML. Going through this course was pretty straightforward and almost without a hassle. But now I have hit a brick wall at using coldfusion components. I followed the instructions in the video and the assignment but I stumble upon this error and cant figure out what is going wrong.

As I am adding the references to the different functions in the component i stumble upon an error. The reference to the getNewsYears function is at the top of my code(as the assignments says). But the output is somewhere at the bottom. The Error below keeps popping up.

I cannot find any info on frequent mistakes made during the tutorial. Can anybody see what I am doing wrong?

This seems like a spelling mistake. You will need to show your code though so we can see.

This normally means the rsNewsYears does not exists. Check the name you gave the query further up the code.

Hi thanks for your reaction! I tried looking for spelling errors but didnt find anything.

This is the news.cfm code

<!---Instance newsService--->

<cfset newsService = createObject('component', 'cfTraining.components.newsService') />

<!---Get news years--->

<cfset rsNewYears = newsService.getNewsYears()/>

<cfmodule template="customTags/front.cfm" title="HD street band - News" >

  <div id="pageBody">

    <div id="calendarContent">

    <cfif isDefined('url.newsID') >

    <!---Output of a single news article--->

    <cfset rsSingleNews = newsService.getNewsByID(url.newsID) />

    <cfoutput>

    <h1>#rsSingleNews.FLD_NEWSTITLE#</h1>

    <p class ="metadata"> Published on #dateformat(rsSingleNews.FLD_NEWSCREATIONDATE, 'mmm dd yyyy')#

    by #rsSingleNews.FLD_USERFIRSTNAME# #rsSingleNews.FLD_USERLASTNAME#</p>

    #rsSingleNews.FLD_NEWSCONTENT#

    </cfoutput>

  

    <cfelseif isDefined('url.year')>

<cfset rsNewsOfYear = newsService.getNewsForYear(url.year) />

<h1> All the news of year<cfoutput > #url.year#</cfoutput></h1>

      <table>

      <!---Output  news in a table--->

      <cfoutput query="rsNewsOfYear" >

      <tr>

      <td>#dateFormat(FLD_NEWSCREATIONDATE,'mm dd yyyy')#</td>

      <td>#FLD_NEWSTITLE#</td>

      <td><a href= "news.cfm?newsID=#FLD_NEWSID#">Read More</a>></td>

      </tr>

      </cfoutput>

      </table>

    <cfelse>

<!---Get all news--->

<cfset rsAllNews = newsService.getLatestNews()/>

  <h1> News</h1>

  <table>

    <!---Output  news in a table--->

    <cfoutput query="rsAllNews">

      <tr>

      <td>#dateFormat(FLD_NEWSCREATIONDATE, 'mmm dd yyyy')#</td>

<div id="calendarSideBar">

The only place you have defined this before is further up but its a different spelling - rsNewYears is not rsNewsYears as you are using on the error line
