RE: Format-Number Function
Michael, Thanks for the response. I'm using Livelink and I wouldn't be surprised if it's a bug but if there is it's going to really screw me up. Here's the xsl line: <td class="number"><xsl:value-of select="format-number(./Total_Cost, '#,###,###')"/></td> The xml is basically like this: <Florida2004A> <Total_Cost>3603664</Total_Cost> </Florida2004A> It comes back to me as '3.' There is no xsl:decimal-format specification in my code. Again, this does format correctly for any number with 6 digits or less. Any suggested work around or other ideas? (other than a new processor?) I guess I could use string functions to format correctly. Many thanks, Carter > Which XSLT processor are you using?
