PRODUCT (PRODUCT elements...) preceding-sibling:: (from among all nodes that are preceding siblings of the current node) For clarity you might want to put  after PRODUCT so you don't get the SKUs of *all* preceding-sibling PRODUCTs. However the fact that you are using xsl:value-of means you're only going to look at the string-value of the first node in that set, which will happen to be the one you want. - Mike ____________________________________________________________________ Mike J.
