Hi,

I have the following XML

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <AnswerList xmlns="http://tempuri.org/ALPS_Assessmentv1p1_RESCO_Schema.xsd">
  2.     <DateTimeLastSaved>12:12:12 1900</DateTimeLastSaved>
  3.     <UserName>Bob</UserName>
  4.     <AssessmentName>Name of Assessment</AssessmentName>
  5.     <AssessmentID>AssID</AssessmentID>
  6.     <Sec_1_1189068258258>TEXT IN HERE</Sec_1_1189068258258>

No matter what I do I can't get this to work!! For some reason there is an issue here with matching the "/" root node.

If I do <xsl:template match="AnswerList"> to start with it will fire off the template lower down the XSL but with NO values in it.... I can not figure out what position I am at in the code.

If i do

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <xsl:for-each select="child::node()">
  2. <xsl:for-each select="child::node()">
  3. <TEST />
I will get the right amount of TEST's for the nodes in the AnswerList but I can not match them for some reason.

As far as I can tell the XML is valid (Created in VS2005 according to a schema).

I have had this before hbut was able to get a work-around looping through the code with "for-each"s but that is not appropriate in this case.

I really need help here folks, as this project is already behind schedule and the customer is NOT happy! :S

Thanks very much,

If someone could do a transform on this in xmlnotepad or something and have a look at the results and tell me why it's not working I would really appreciate it!

Cheers,

I figured this out... essentially XSLT HATES stuff with default namespace... so I changed my schema and XML file so I don't have a namespace in the XML doc and it's working (for now)
