RE: xslt for hierarchical data
Hi Jody, I would think that the best way to solve your problem would be to use a 2-phase transformation. You first create a nodeset that way you have the hierarchical relationship readily available. Thus your xml becomes, <records> <record id="1" name="Jack"> <record id="1" name="Jack Jr"> <record id="7" name="Jack III"/> </record> <record id="4" name="William"> <record id="3" name="William Jr."> <record id="3" name="William III"> <record id="3" name="William IV"/> </record> </record> </record> </record> </records> and in the second phase you emit the result with the elements correctly intendeted. Ofcourse to do this in XSLT 1.0, you would need the nodeset extension function. Hope this helps. cheers, prakash Jody Robert Ford <jody.r.ford@gma To: <xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> il.com> cc: (bcc: omprakash.v/Polaris) Subject: RE: xslt for hierarchical data 01/11/2006 05:16 PM Please respond to xsl-list Sample code would be extremely helpful.
