They are lists of attribute's names, attributes that must not be copied. The 'identity' attribute is already present in your input XML, no need to copy it. No 'reference' attribute appeared in your desired output, so I thought it should be excluded as well. After the principal field is found in the variable, the 'name' attribute is copied, but not anymore from referenced fields. Otherwise the ouput would contain: name="bit" instead of name="principalPlace" > It basically just copied everything over from the passed in file, but > it did not look to see if an element should get its attributes/nodes > from a referenced element. It does with me. Up to an arbitrary level. THis is a part of the ouput: <field identity="5AB5F3AD-D9DD-713A-D582F669F41CFAA8" required="true" display="Is Principal Place of Business" name="principalPlace" valid="01" type="boolean"> <option value="0"/> <option value="1"/> </field> I hope you can make it work this time. kind regards, -- Joris Gillis (http://users.telenet.be/root-jg/me.html) Vincit omnia simplicitas Keep it simple
