rather tricky numbering problem
Hello I have a requirement which I am not sure if this can be done in XSLT. I will try to explain it theoretically as much as possible and please let me know if there is any way this can be done in XSLT. I have a bunch of XML files in a folder. The XML files have an element called 'prod-num' which is an 8-digit number the first 5 of which follows a particular numbering scheme based on what the XML is for. For example, if the XML represents books for children, the prod-num has the following numbering scheme : 1212 - 1. If the XML data represents books for Science, the prod-num has the following numbering scheme: 1212-2 Now, here is what needs to happen. The last three of the prod-num needs to be sequentially numbered if the first 5 are the same. So, in my explained example above, the transformation needs to read the folder with the XML files, and read through the prod-num values. If there are say two XML files with 1212-1, then the first one needs to be updated with 1212-1001, the second one becomes 1212-1002. Can the experts please give me some tips and ideas to resolve this? Thanks in advance
