concatenated key file
Sorry for being thick headed...and I am not looking for anyone to write my
code for me.  But being so new to XSLT I have a ton of questions, this
just being the current hurdle.

David, I did as you instructed.  See my XSL file below:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
  <xsl:import href="http://xsltsl.sourceforge.net/modules/stdlib.xsl"/>

  <xsl:key name="byObligationAndPhone" match="BillDetail"
  <xsl:key name="byObligation" match="BillDetail" use="OBLIGATION_ID" />

        This is an XSLT template file. Fill in this area with the
        XSL elements which will transform your XML to XHTML.
  <xsl:template match="/">
    <table border="1">
      Calls for <xsl:value-of select="OBLIGATION_ID"/>
      <!-- now further group this by phone -->
      <xsl:variable name="OBLIGATION" select="OBLIGATION_ID"/>
            <xsl:value-of select="OBLIGATION_ID"/>
            <xsl:value-of select="PHONE_NUMBER"/>

All that gets displayed is just the <th> tags...no data.

Again, I am sorry that I am so green to all of this.  In just a few days
of messing around with this technology, I am wishing I had this knowledge
in my "toolkit" many moons ago...

Many thanks again!
