Re: retrieve data from #1 xml via data from #2 xml

But it's not helping, (well, it mostly is but...) [ My dummy data has 3 records, 12 fields My tabelData has 6 of the above 12 fields Thats all I want to see, a sub set ] My problem with this is that when I run this, I get 3 rows, as I should but I also get all 12 fields, not just the 6 as defined in tableData. So I figure I need some conditional in here to see if the current NODE is part of the tableData NODE set. I just can't figure how to get that piece of info out of the 'variable' set I have. After several days of banging my head against the wall I thought I would ask for help (again!). Walter XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
