pass parameter to xsl vbscript
Hi Raguld,

Try something like this ...

ASP fragment;
   Dim oXSL,oXML,sXML,template,processor

   Set oXSL = Server.Createobject("MSXML2.FreeThreadedDOMDocument30")
   oXSL.async = False
   oXSL.validateOnParse = True
   oXSL.Load (pstrStyleXML)

   Set oXML = Server.Createobject("MSXML2.DOMDocument")
   oXML.async = False
   sXML = "<YOURXML><PERSON fname="John" lname="Smith"></PERSON><PERSON
fname="Bob" lname="Jones"></PERSON></YOURXML>"
   oXML.LoadXML sXML

   Dim template, processor
   Set template = Server.Createobject(MSXML2.XSLTemplate30)
   Set template.stylesheet = oXSL
   Set processor = template.createProcessor
   processor.input = oXML
   processor.addParameter "myparam", "fname"
   Response.Write processor.output

End ASP fragment.

XSL Fragement;
   <xsl:stylesheet ....>		
	<xsl:param name="myparam"/>

	<xsl:template match="/">
		<xsl:apply-templates select="YOURXML">

	<xsl:template match="YOURXML">
		<xsl:for-each select="PERSON">
			<xsl:sort select="@*[name() = $myparam]"/> 



This is using server side VBScript in your ASP file.

Subject:  Passing parameters to xsl-stylesheet

Hello all,

What is the exact syntax of passing an argument (parameter) from an asp-page

to an xsl-stylesheet and what is the syntax for recieving the parameter in 
the stylesheet?

I have a stylesheet that sorts an xml-file by various methods and want the 
user to be able to choose which method to sort by.

Sorry, I know this is a real newbee question, and I have seen answers for it

before, but I can't find the answer in the archive and Michael Kay only 
describe the passing in general terms that I can find (p. 284 in second
