>Is there anyway to do something like: for $x in collection("xmlfiles") where 'xmlfiles' is a subdirectory containing the actual xml files I want to use? I would need to know the exact syntax, as this is all new to me. As others have said, the interpretation of the URI passed to collection() is very much processor-dependent. Altova have their own XQuery processor, and I would imagine it treats collection() in the same way as their XSLT processor: in their 2007 product that's effectively a null implementation, in the 2008 version it does roughly the same as Saxon: you can either specify a directory name, or the name of an XML file that acts as a catalog of the collection. IIRC, they don't provide the ability to filter the contents of the directory. Michael Kay http://www.saxonica.com/
