Ross DSubject: XSL IF with sum
Author: Ross D
Date: 10 Aug 2009 05:41 PM
Hi - Any help or guidance would be appreciated. I am trying a new xml file with the total of one of the specific elements - below is the original xml file:

<Report>
<Unit>
<Name>t1</Name>
<Price>32</Price>
<Other>sdasd</Other>
</Unit>
<Unit>
<Name>t1</Name>
<Price>42</Price>
<Other>dasdasd</Other>
</Unit>
<Unit>
<Name>t2</Name>
<Price>11</Price>
<Other>asdas</Other>
</Unit>
<Unit>
<Name>t3</Name>
<Price>21</Price>
<Other>dasd</Other>
</Unit>
<Unit>
<Name>t1</Name>
<Price>65</Price>
<Other>dasda</Other>
</Unit>

</Report>

The xsl that I am trying to us is as follows: instead of giving me 1 value it gives me a list of all t1 values rather than a sumation

<test>
<xsl:if test="Name = 'T1'">
<xsl:variable name="value1" select ="sum(Price)"/>
<xsl:value-of select="$value1"/>
</xsl:if>
</test>


thanks

Hi Ross,
the fact that you write "sum(Price)" means that you are looping over the Unit element, so you are always summing a single price. I guess what you really want is to set Report as context item and then run

<test>
<xsl:value-of select="sum(Unit[Name='t1']/Price)/>
</test>
