RE: problem with flat xml file
>http://www.dpawson.co.uk/xsl/sect2/flatfile.html >May give you some clues Bryan. thanks those are some great examples, wish I'd looked at all these yesterday morning! I finally solved it but the solution was very ugly, of course the problem was ugly, most of the file could be easily structured in sort of the way example number 2 was, but there were these five tags, CKF, CKF_overskrift, Gruppe, Delmaal, and Trin(ugly names also). CKF ... /CKF .....other flat structure tags... Trin.../Trin CKF_overskrift .... /CKF_overskrift Gruppe../Gruppe Delmaal ../Delmaal Gruppe../Gruppe Delmaal../Delmaal CKF had a text() which was the same as some CKF_overskrift text() with a one to many relationship. CKF_overskrift had a one to many relationship with Gruppe and Delmaal, For each Gruppe there was an answering Delmaal, and once one had the rest of it structured, each CKF/CKF_overskrift had a Trin it related to. the result tree had to look like this: other hierarchical structure up here. CKF ...other hierarchical structure in here, easy to get. --TRIN --Gruppe --Delmaal../Delmaal /Gruppe --Gruppe --Delmaal../Delmaal /Gruppe /Trin --Trin ... /CKF CKF... .../CKF I did it, but I had to use saxon:next-in-chain, probably my conceptual limits, the thing I kept running up against was that it was like several different types of flat structures in one file, I had to seperate these out, and then order them. Actually I think I might go through that faq and see if I can build it simpler, it was bugging me all night thinking out new algorithms, when I did sleep I had nightmares involving xslt and Rutger Hauer as a vengeful psycho(he's good at that.).
