samir sawantSubject: XSL for multiple columns and converting to pDF
Author: samir sawant

Hi..

Hi I have a following large XML file.


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<root>
<region>
<row>
<field>017814100</field>
<field>178141</field>
<field>SWITCH</field>
<field>006</field>
<field>000011</field>
<field>109.36</field>
<field>74.28</field>
</row>
<row>
<field>307429600</field>
<field>3074296</field>
<field>CLP,RTG</field>
<field>006</field>
<field>000011</field>
<field>168.59</field>
<field>114.51</field>
</row>
....
.....
</region>
</root>


Need to convert this in following format where i will
get 2 columns side by side on pages which will
continue till the end of data. Flow of the data on the
page should be down and then across

AFter every 5 records , the line space should be
there.
BOth columns should be inline means space after 5
records in both columns should match on the same line.
Field within same column should be seperated by space and fields should be justified.

two columns should be seperated by vertical line in
between. Headings should repeat on each page.
Format should look like as below:

< TITLE>
<Headings> <Headings>
F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7 F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7
F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7 F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7
F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7 F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7
F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7 F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7
F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7 F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7

F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7 F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7
F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7 F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7
F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7 F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7
F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7 F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7
F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7 F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7

F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7 F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7
F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7 F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7
F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7 F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7
F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7 F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7
F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7 F1 F2 F3 F4 F5 F6 F7



Thanks,
Samir

Here is an example that generates HTML


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
<xsl:output method="html"/>

<xsl:template match="/">
<xsl:variable name="count" select="count(root/region/row)"/>
<html>
<body>
<table border="1">
<tr>
<td>Heading 1</td>
<td>Heading 2</td>
</tr>

<tr>
<td>
<table border="1">
<tr>
<td width="100">Field 1</td>
<td width="100">Field 2</td>
<td width="100">Field 3</td>
<td width="100">Field 4</td>
<td width="100">Field 5</td>
<td width="100">Field 6</td>
<td width="100">Field 7</td>
</tr>
</table>
</td>

<td>
<table border="1">
<tr>
<td width="100">Field 1</td>
<td width="100">Field 2</td>
<td width="100">Field 3</td>
<td width="100">Field 4</td>
<td width="100">Field 5</td>
<td width="100">Field 6</td>
<td width="100">Field 7</td>
</tr>
</table>
</td>

</tr>

<xsl:for-each select="root/region/row[position() mod 2 != 0]">
<tr>
<td>
<table border="1">
<tr>
<xsl:for-each select="field">
<td width="100">
<xsl:value-of select="."/>
</td>
</xsl:for-each>
</tr>
</table>
</td>
<td>
<table border="1">
<tr>
<xsl:for-each select="following-sibling::row[1]/field">
<td width="100">
<xsl:value-of select="."/>

Hi there im new to all this XML and i need to do what your doing i think.....

I need to create labels from data in PDF.....in the correct format.

I am used to ASP and SQL.
Did you get this to work...if so how.
Just the basic steps.
....Create XSD or xml XSL-FO ....

Stabbing in the dark here.

I have to produce 100 labels all differnt sizes based on user selecting the size of labels.
