Extract nested data from XML via XSLT

I am trying to extract just a portion of data from an XML data source:

<Col Name="Col0">123456<CellColour>36</CellColour>

When I extract the Col field I get "1234563612111FalsexlCenterxlBottomFalse00Fals e" using " <xsl:value-of select="Col"/>".

I just want the first portion of data "123456". I do not need any of the html tags or html data.

Any suggestions? Any direction on this would be greatly appreciated.

<xsl:value-of select="Col/text()"/>
<xsl:value-of select="Col/text()[1]"/>

That worked great!!. Thanks

One more question to extend your reply..

Each set is named "<Col Name="Col0">123456". How do I reference them by name?

Col Name="Col0">123456
Col Name="Col1">456789
Col Name="Col2">678912
Col Name="Col3">234565

Meaning each has its own name Col0, Col1, Col2, etc.

When using Col/text() it pulls only the first Col0 as that is the tag of the data set. I already have a loop setup which now grabs the first Col/text() in each set. I how do I pull them by name?

Not entirely sure what you want.
Either <xsl:value-of select="Col[@name = 'Col0']/text()"/>

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <xsl:for-each select="Col">
  2.   <xsl:value-of select="@name"/>:<xsl:value-of select="text()"/>
  3. </xsl:for-each>
