You don't produce any output, remove the <xsl:variable> ... </xsl:variable>, and your template will produce your desired output. <xsl:template name="WholeRequestMax"> <xsl:for-each select="row/whole-request"> <xsl:sort data-type="number" order="descending"/> <xsl:if test="position()=1"> <xsl:value-of select="."/> </xsl:if> </xsl:for-each> </xsl:template> I don't think this i to effective, though. You walk through all nodes while you only need the first one. But assuming the <xsl:sort> takes O(n log(n)) the additional O(n) to test all sorted nodes does not hurt. I tried to think up something better using another called template bat failed :-( ... some times later i will have time again to think about how to otimize XSL-Ts. Cu, Goetz.
