Hi,

I am trying to sum up a value using a published algorithm. The algoritm seems to get the correct value, but I cannot seem to format the value without getting NaN. Could anyone help.

Here is the XML.

<client name='Joe Bloggs'>

    <supplier name='A'>
        <product name='C'>
            <investment name='D='1200' price='5.50'/>
            <investment name='E' units='1200' price='3.50'/>
            <investment name='F' units='1345' price='6.55'/>
        </product>
    </supplier>

    <supplier name='B'>
        <product name='E'>
            <investment name='T' units='1200' price='5.50'/>
            <investment name='W' units='1200' price='3.50'/>
            <investment name='S' units='1345' price='6.55'/>
        </product>
    </supplier>

</client>

And here is the xslt.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet
    xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
    xmlns:msxsl="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:xslt"
    xmlns:palantir="http://www.palantir.co.za"
    version="1.0">
   
<xsl:output
  method = "xml"
  version = "1.0"
  encoding = "UTF-8"
  indent = "yes"/>  
 
  <msxsl:script language="VBScript" implements-prefix="palantir">
  <![CDATA[
 
    Function Format(value)
         
         Format = value
         'Format = FormatCurrency(value)
         
    End Function
   
  ]]>
  </msxsl:script>  
 
  <xsl:template match="/">
  <table>
  <xsl:apply-templates/>
  </table>
  </xsl:template>
 
  <xsl:template match='client'>
  <tr>
    <td><xsl:value-of select='@name'/></td>
    <td>
   
        <xsl:call-template name='total-investment'>
            <xsl:with-param name='investment-set' select='//investment'/>
        </xsl:call-template>
   
    </td>
  </tr>
  </xsl:template>
 
  <xsl:template name='total-investment'>
    <xsl:param name='investment-set'/>
    <xsl:choose>
        <xsl:when test='$investment-set'>
            <xsl:variable name='first-node'>
                <xsl:apply-templates select='$investment-set[1]' mode='investment-price'/>
            </xsl:variable>
            <xsl:variable name='other-nodes'>
                <xsl:call-template name='total-investment'>
                    <xsl:with-param name='investment-set' select='$investment-set[position()!=1]'/>
                </xsl:call-template>
            </xsl:variable>
            <xsl:value-of select='palantir:Format(number(number($first-node) + number($other-nodes)))'/>
        </xsl:when>
        <xsl:otherwise>0</xsl:otherwise>
    </xsl:choose>
  </xsl:template>                                    
                                   
  <xsl:template match='investment' mode='investment-price'>
    <xsl:value-of select='@units * @price'/>
  </xsl:template>
 
</xsl:stylesheet>

The above xslt works, except when I comment back in the format code it doesn't work.
I have tried the xslt built in functions, and I am getting the same result.

Please help.
Regards
-craig.

The following is a more succinct and better performing stylesheet

Notes
=====
This XSLT Document allows for multiple clients and for which there is proper totalling, it allows works for singular clients, hence to make the code run properly, you change the first template:

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

Thanks very much.
I have used a hybrid of your last suggestion as I wish to use parameters and sum at several different levels.

I am still a tad unsure of why I was getting the NaN value, although I will look at it in more detail. Your solution works perfectly, thanks.
