I am using the Saxon 8.9.0.3 XSLT processor.

I am trying to convert this XML:
<Report xmlns="bwreport.es.service" delimiter="#">
<ColumnHeaders>
<Column>Period/Fiscal Year</Column>
<Column>Commitment</Column>
<Column>Obligation</Column>
</ColumnHeaders>
<Data>
<R>Period 00 2004# #</R>
<R>OCT 2004#$ 60,676,740.88#$ 60,658,920.88</R>
<R>NOV 2004#$ 52,446,486.16#$ 52,444,236.16</R>
<R>DEC 2004#$ 65,762,952.83#$ 65,762,952.83</R>
</Data>
</Report>

to this text output:
Period 00 2004# #
OCT 2004#$ 60,676,740.88#$ 60,658,920.88
NOV 2004#$ 52,446,486.16#$ 52,444,236.16
DEC 2004#$ 65,762,952.83#$ 65,762,952.83

I keep ending up with this as a result in the text file (also, the tabs don't seem to appear as presented but are there):
Period 00 2004# #
OCT 2004#$ 60,676,740.88#$ 60,658,920.88
NOV 2004#$ 52,446,486.16#$ 52,444,236.16
DEC 2004#$ 65,762,952.83#$ 65,762,952.83

I don't want the tabs in the output document.

My XSLT is:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xmlns:bwreport="bwreport.es.service">
<xsl:output method="text" indent="no"/>
<xsl:strip-space elements="*"/>
<xsl:template match="/bwreport:Report/bwreport:Data/bwreport:R">
<xsl:apply-templates/>
</xsl:template>
<xsl:template match="text()">
<xsl:value-of select="."/>
<xsl:text>
</xsl:text>
</xsl:template>
<xsl:template match="bwreport:ColumnHeaders"/>
</xsl:stylesheet>

I have read several XSLT documents on-line to no avail.

TIA

MTH

Hi Michael,
as the tabs are not displayed in your message, it's hard to understand what is not working; could you attach the files instead of copying them?

Thanks,
Alberto

The files are attached.

The file with the original xml is called report.xml. The output file is called bw_report_output.txt.

Thanks.

Hi Michael,
the tab that is generated before each row is defined inside the xsl:text you wrote in the stylesheet.
You have

(TAB)<xsl:text>(CR)(LF)
(TAB)</xsl:text>

and this will write a new line followed by a tab after each row. If oyu change it to be

(TAB)<xsl:text>(CR)(LF)
</xsl:text>

you should get what you are expecting.

Hope this helps,
Alberto
