Antonie

If you don't want to use a variable, you could do:

> 		<xsl:variable name="ItemText">
> 			<xsl:value-of select="@item" />
> 		</xsl:variable>
> 		<xsl:copy-of select="/inventory/item[@itemcode=$ItemText]"

<xsl:copy-of select="/inventory/item[@itemcode=current()/@item]"/>


Kind regards,
