    Having access to a list of values can be very powerful. You can obtain access to a list of values from a text field, a value list, or even a custom function that acquires the values from across a found set of records as in the Unique List article. Once you have this list you may want to process each value of the list. The cfParseValueList custom function in this demo will show you several different ways to dynamically parse a value list.
