Thank you very much for this.
I forgot to mention that I am using xslt 2.0 and used the tokenize function to calculate variable.

Well if you're using XSLT 2.0, then this:

>       <xsl:variable name="doctype" select="@sp_document_type"/>

Can be this:

<xsl:for-each-group select="//document-type" group-by="@sp_document_type">
  <xsl:variable name="doctype" select="current-grouping-key()"/>

While you may not be processing the entire group, there's no rule that says you have to.

Alternatively, you might consider this:

<xsl:for-each select="distinct-values(//document-type/@sp-document-type">
  <xsl:variable name="doctype" select="."/>
