The document() function does not provide for using wildcards to resolve URIs, so it's not possible to fully automate the process by doing something like <xsl:apply-templates select="document('*.xml')"/> One solution is to create an XML source document listing all the files you want to process, then use it as the input for the stylesheet. Given source such as: <file-list> <file>a.xml</file> <file>b.xml</file> <!-- etc. --> </file-list> you can do something like this: <xsl:template match="/file-list"> <xsl:for-each select="document(file)"> <!-- do something --> </xsl:for-each> </xsl:template> This is expensive, as it selects the root node (in other words, the entire document) as the context for each iteration--see the FAQ (http://www.dpawson.co.uk/xsl/sect2/N2602.html#d2874e403) for more ideas on processing multiple documents. hth, b. | brian martinez brian.martinez@xxxxxxxxxxx | | lead gui programmer 303.357.3548 | | cheap tickets, part of trip network fax 303.357.3380 | | 6560 greenwood plaza blvd., suite 400 englewood, co 80111 | | cendant travel distribution services http://www.cheaptickets.com/ | XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
