Am I using the correct XMLNS?
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xmlns:saxon="http://icl.com/saxon" >

I have also attached my xsl
I assign the variable on line 269
I modify the variable using saxon:assign on line 280
Currently i am just testing it to get it to work.

I am planning on using in this manner;
I read a line from the imput file, store field5 in a variable and print the line
then i read the second line in the imput file, check to see if field5 is the same as the variable.
If it is the same, I will read line three
If it is different, I will update the variable and print the line

Again, this code is not in the XSL because I am testing to see if I can get saxon:assign to work first

Can you please help?

Three things:

1. For saxon-specific questions, you might want to post on the saxon-help mailing list. The original author himself monitors that list, and he is the best resource. See https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/saxon-help

2. The namespace you are using in xmlns:saxon is for Saxon 6.5. I assume you are using Saxon 9? See http://www.saxonica.com/documentation/extensions/intro.html

3. saxon:assign is almost always the wrong way to do something. Although the description is at http://www.saxonica.com/documentation/extensions/instructions/assign.html, digging on xsl-list will show that it is generally frowned upon, and there is some debate over whether it will be removed.
