RE: concat variable names
Hi Michael: Variable names are constant, so you can't create them dynamically in the way you describe. I would recommend something like this: <xsl:variable name="mySettings.tf"> <Setting Name="var_1">value_of_var1</Setting> <Setting Name="var_2">value_of_var2</Setting> <Setting Name="var_3">value_of_var3</Setting> <Setting Name="var_4">value_of_var4</Setting> </xsl:variable> <xsl:variable name="mySettings" select="msxsl:node-set($mySettings.tf)"/> (replace msxl:node-set() with your preferred nodeset from tree fragment function) You can then replace references to $var_x with $mySettings/Setting[@Name='var_1'], and to get all the values, simply get all $mySettings/Setting.

I have 5 variables $var_1, $var_2, ..., $var_5; all declared as global variables. I want to use this varibles in a loop, something like this: loop (count from 1 to 5, store the counter in a variable called $counter) <xsl:variable name="newvar" select="$(concat('var_', $counter))"/> What I want to get, is that the variable $newvar stores the value of $var_1 and in the next run the value of $var2, and so on up to $var_5. It does not work (of course) with the method above, but is there a way it will work??? (It seems to me that this is a general problem in XSL, for I have other projects where it would be very usefully too). Thanks!
