Re: how to increment a variable in a for-each loop

xsl increment loop
You are getting all red cells because in your XSL for-each statement, you are only selecting the current node. So there is only 1 element in your for-each set. Instead of selecting itself (.), you need to select the element name that so that all of those elements are in the set that you want to test with the mod checks.

Instead of:
<xsl:for-each select=".">

You want:
<xsl:for-each select="yourElementName">

Hope that helps,
