try this

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
<xsl:template match="/">

<xsl:for-each select="//row[@num='1']">
<xsl:for-each select="col[@num='1']">
    <xsl:value-of select="@drill"/>



<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<row num='1'>
     <col num='1' drill ='test1' >a</col>
     <col num='2' >a2</col>
<row num='2'>
     <col num='1' drill ='test2' >b</col>
     <col num='2' >b2</col>
<row num='3'>
     <col num='1' drill ='test3' >c</col>
     <col num='2' >c2</col>

i've rejigged your xml around a little.....

in general the stylesheet could be changed to use templates, beginning users
of XSLT tend to use xsl:for-each a little too often;

XSL file
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
<xsl:template match="/">

<xsl:apply-templates select="//row[@num='1']/col[@num='1']"/>


<xsl:template match="row[@num='1']/col[@num='1']">
<xsl:value-of select="@drill"/>


so instead of using xsl:for-each one uses templates, now admittedly what i
have made here is still awkward, i leave it to u to clean up my mess.

good luck, jim fuller
