Re: Failing string() test fail
OK, this is XSLT 1.0 (I should get in the habit of mentioning that) The general idea is to display a group heading with child heading and child detail below each child heading, with the following rules in place: 1) only display a group heading if 1 or more child details items occur 2) only display a child heading if 1 or more child details occur I'd say the above is typical, well, common anyhow. I have proven that my context is valid with xsl:comment(s) like <!-- YES I AM HERE --> I have dummed down the xml (see below) and written similar xpath expressions, as a sanity check. So now I am wondering what is it I could be doing wrong. I can't freely post the xml and xsl source, as this is a solution for a client. I will continue to test and experiment but am afraid that I might have to resort to a workaround. The demands on this report are pretty steep leading up to this point with left to right pivoted groupings requiring a few recursive template calls, and following::sibling types of selects. Is it possible that I have overworked the engine, found a bug? It would be my 2nd in about 5 years if I had! Karl..
