Gary LovellSubject: XML Traversal in XSLT Mapper
Author: Gary Lovell
Date: 18 Jul 2022 02:02 PM
If an XML file uses the same Node Name in lower Nodes, expanding the node goes into an infinite loop. It also uses child nodes from other Nodes in areas that don't exist. Having a look at the attached file you will see 2 main areas - ERPOrder_PurchOrdLineDetails_Item and ERPOrder_PurchOrdSplitDetails_Item - each of these have a structure Items->LineItems->Items - Because Items appears twice - in the UI it just keeps going. This prevents using the Auto Map function in XSLT.

Helo Gary,

Stylus Studio tries to guess the document structure, based on best effort.

Element structures are bound to the element root name.

In your document all elements are in the same namespace therefore cannot be distinguished.

If you have the XML Schema (XSD) that describes your documents you can use the schema instead of XML instance.

If you do not have the schema you can design one using Stylus Studio.

If you need assistance we can help you design the schema.

Hope this helps
