RE: Getting an error with a variable
Thanks for your help, worked great. I have another question. I'm wanting to combine 2 xml files. One has a list of car number and competitor names, the other is a list of times. Essentially a relational database. I use .asp to pass the xml and xsl files. Is it possible to pass 2 xml files, or how can I access the data from the 2nd xml file. Could you point me to some documentation. I havent been able to find anything.

So it's already gone out of scope outside the xsl:when clause. Also it is a lot more efficient to use the form <xsl:variable name="sNum" select="@no"/> as that binds sNum to the attribute whereas <xsl:variable name="sNum"> <xsl:value-of select="@no"/> </xsl:variable> makes a new root node with child a text node with string value the string value of the attribute. I think you want the h2 element to contain the @no attribute if 0=$paramVal4 and $paramVal2 otherwise, in which case no variables are needed: <h2> <xsl:value-of select="$paramVal2[not(0=$paramVal4)] | /stages[0=$paramVal4]/competition/itinerary/stage/ @no" /> </h2> David
