Ken KoskiSubject: Using functions with a xsl:value-of statement

When I try to compile it, I get the following error : Element type "xsl:value-of" must be followed by either attribute specifications, ">" or "/>". The question is: Am what I am trying to do possible? If so, how? The code I am using as follows: <xsl:if test="$colName='DateEntered'"> <CreatedDate xmlns=""> <xsl:value-of select='(concat(substr(".",1,10),'T',(".",12,19)))'/> </CreatedDate><br> </xsl:if> Thanks in advance, Ken

Hi Ken,

>When I try to compile it, I get the following error :
>Element type "xsl:value-of" must be followed by either
>attribute specifications, ">" or "/>".
><xsl:value-of select='(concat(substr(".",1,10),'T',(".",12,19)))'/>

The error is using the single quote around the 'T' argument; as you have already used them to delimit the attribute value, this is not valid XML.
You should use double quotes:

<xsl:value-of select='(concat(substr(".",1,10),"T",(".",12,19)))'/>

Hope this helps,
