RE: Converting CSV to XML without hardcoding schema d
You are correct, Wendell. I am using XSLT2.0. Other than breaking up the strings, my issue is how to generate the output xml with the element names generated at runtime from the field names in the csv. I was using xsl:element - but I was trying to achieve the above using item-at and was not sure if I can use that function within the xsl:element name AVT. Thanks a lot, Vish. >-----Original Message----- >From: Wendell Piez [mailto:wapiez@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx] >Sent: Wednesday, June 21, 2006 1:02 PM >To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx >Subject: RE: Converting CSV to XML without hardcoding schema details >in xsl > >Hi Vish, > >I take it you're using XSLT 2.0 from the construct for-each >select="tokenize(.,',')"? > >If not, let's not get on the wrong track. > >Even if so, look up the instruction <xsl:element/>, since it'll allow >you to create elements named with values from your data -- better >than trying to write tags.
