Re: convert large array to several smaller arrays cont
This is where you code is broken:
At 05:14 PM 11/11/2003, you wrote:
<xsl:if test="position() mod 2 = '0'"> </topgroup> <topgroup> </xsl:if>
This is not well-formed XML. The parser is seeing the </topgroup> end tag here; its error message is complaining that it's the wrong end tag. The only end tag allowed where you have "</topgroup>" is </xsl:if>.
So, you ask, what do I do if I can't "close" an element and "open" another one? Hint: XSLT is not a set of string-writing routines, and it doesn't work by writing tags to the output. Instead, it builds trees. Instead of
you want something like
<xsl:for-each select="//WorkOrder/lineService[position() mod 2 = 1]">
The difference between this and what you had is that it specifies a set of *nodes* to be added to the result *tree* -- not just write a bunch of tags (which hopefully will parse). Not incidentally, the stylesheet template itself is well-formed XML, and will parse.
