See page 261 of my XSLT book that is free on my web site.

The feature you want is recurse=yes. You may wish to use on-error=ignore.


I hope this helps.

Hi Folks,

I have a folder that contains subfolders. Within each subfolder is a bunch of XML files. I want to iterate over all the XML files in all the subfolders. I tried the following and it doesn't work:

<xsl:for-each select="collection('folder/*?select=*.xml')">
        Root element = <xsl:value-of select="name(/*)"/>

What is the correct way to do this?
