Anne-Lie WahlbergSubject: Problem with select expression
Author: Anne-Lie Wahlberg
Date: 18 Jun 2008 04:05 PM
My input xml looks (very simplified) like this:
<Main>
<invoice>
<No>1</No>
<Date>20080101</Date>
<Project>100</Project>
<Activity>209</Activity>
<Description>some text</Description>
</invoice>
<invoice>
<No>1</No>
<Date>20080101</Date>
<Project>100</Project>
<Activity>200</Activity>
<Description>some text</Description>
</invoice>
<invoice>
<No>2</No>
<Date>20080522</Date>
<Project/>
<Activity>10</Activity>
<Description>some text</Description>
</invoice>
<invoice>
<No>2</No>
<Date>20080522</Date>
<Project>45</Project>
<Activity>22</Activity>
<Description>some text</Description>
</invoice>
<invoice>
<No>3</No>
<Date>20080315</Date>
<Project>356</Project>
<Activity>101</Activity>
<Description>some text</Description>
</invoice>
<invoice>
<No>3</No>
<Date/>
<Project>356</Project>
<Activity>22</Activity>
<Description>some text</Description>
</invoice>
<Main>

I will apply a xslt stylesheet which transform the data into exactly the same structure but after I applied some rules and validations to it. One of my rules states that if <Project> and/or <Date> is empty, the whole invoice will be ignored. Applied to the above I would like the outcome to be:

<Main>
<invoice>
<No>1</No>
<Date>20080101</Date>
<Project>100</Project>
<Activity>209</Activity>
<Description>some text</Description>
</invoice>
<invoice>
<No>1</No>
<Date>20080101</Date>
<Project>100</Project>
<Activity>200</Activity>
<Description>some text</Description>
</invoice>
</Main>

Since both invoice 2 and 3 didn't pass the validation. For now I am using the following expression in a <xsl:for-each>
"/*[local-name()='Main'][(Project != '') and (Date != '')]"
that gives me all the invoices except the two that are missing a project or date. What I want is to exclude invoice 2 and 3 totally.

Very grateful for any hints....

General XSLT questions are better asked on dedicated XSLT discussion lists, like the one hosted at mulberrytech dot com.
