Steve IngelsSubject: Trying to dynamically create node names.

</Name>
<Name>
<First></First>
<Last></Last>
<Middle></Middle>
</Name>
</Names>


But I have to format it into nodes like this:


<name_first_1></name_first_1>
<name_last_1></name_last_1>
<name_middle_1></name_middle_1>
<name_first_2></name_first_2>
<name_last_2></name_last_2>
<name_middle_2></name_middle_2>


So I wanted to use position() to figure out a way to dynamically change the node name so I could do something like "<name_first_$value>". Am I coming from left field with this? :)


Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Hi Steve,
something like this should work:

<xsl:for-each select="Names/Name">
<xsl:element name="name_first_{position()}"><xsl:value-of select="First"/></xsl:element>
<xsl:element name="name_last_{position()}"><xsl:value-of select="Last"/></xsl:element>
<xsl:element name="name_middle_{position()}"><xsl:value-of select="Middle"/></xsl:element>
</xsl:for-each>
