Re: Why doesn test work in one case, but not another??
I'm assuming here Filemaker Pro is working like many other database products can do now, it takes the results of a query, produces them in xml, then transforms the xml via xslt.
So let's imagine we have a database that returns all results in csv.
id, name 1,bob 2,henry 3,ben 4,susan
The internal process converts this too something perhaps like:
<results> <row> <id>1</id> <name>bob</name> </row> .... and so on.
Or it could be something like <results> <row> <field name="@bob">bob</field> ... then you can apply the transform to it.
Notice you need to understand the form of the xml that the stylesheet will apply to. It doesn't matter that you know in the abstract in the database it will be a field called "name". The xslt just cares about how the document being feed into is marked up.
