Feel like an idiot (flash remoting with coldfusion)

okay, i’ve been playing around with coldfusion for the past couple of days. I can make database queries within coldfusion components and call them in flash via flash remoting.

what I can’t seem to get my brain around is how do I use what is returned from a database to populate a menu (i.e.-attach movie clips based on rows from the database)?

How can you do this without the structure found in XML? I know how to do that with Flash (looping through nodes, etc.)

without the nodes, what the heck do you loop through? Do i need to use cold fusion to build some kind of structure first? if so does anybody know of a good tute or know how to do it and can explain the very basic concepts involved??? @#%@#%)@@@!!! thanks for any feedback!
