Tweaks needed for XSL sheet (using Saxon) - outputting to Excel file now

Hello guys,

Here is my current XSL...everything is fine, but here is the rest of what I need plus a question...thank you.

1. I have the column names (excel sheet) coming in as the field names from the database and would like to rename them.  I tried to use -> msxsl:node-set($vColumnLabels)/label[@id = current()/@name] -> but I got the following error: "The URI urn:schemas-microsoft=ocm:xslt does not identify an external Java class"

2. Do I have to specify the output file name (results.xml)?  I'm testing right now, but think its a temp file and the name could change... -> <xsl:variable name="input" select="document('results.xml')"/>

3. Is there a way to align all the data to the left (some on the left, some on the right)?

XSL:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"  
xmlns:saxon="http://icl.com/saxon"
xmlns:date="http://www.jclark.com/xt/java/java.util.Date"
extension-element-prefixes="saxon" version="1.0">
<xsl:variable name="vColumnLabels">

</xsl:variable>
<xsl:variable name="input" select="document('results.xml')"/>
<xsl:template match="/">
<xsl:variable name="filename">
 <xsl:if test="function-available('date:to-string') and function-available('date:new')">
<xsl:value-of select="concat(translate(date:to-string(date:new()),':',''),'.xls')"/>
 </xsl:if>
</xsl:variable>
<saxon:output href="{$filename}" method="text">
<xsl:for-each select="$input/ResultSet/ResultSetData/Row[1]/Column">
<xsl:value-of select="@name"/>
<xsl:text>&#x9;</xsl:text>
</xsl:for-each>
<xsl:text>&#013;</xsl:text>
<xsl:for-each select="$input/ResultSet/ResultSetData/Row">
<xsl:for-each select="Column" >
            <xsl:value-of select="."/>
     <xsl:if test="not(position() = last())">
<xsl:text>&#x9;</xsl:text>
  </xsl:if>
</xsl:for-each>
<xsl:text>&#013;</xsl:text>
</xsl:for-each>
      </saxon:output>
       </xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>

hi jpegvarn
It’s me again, I have rewritten the style sheet to produce a base XML file using Microsoft schema.
The style sheet now will produce an Excel file but we should be able to apply formatting to the cells as well.
To start with aligned everything to the left so you can see.
Can you please give more details about the other changes you looking for

#3 works, thank you...

1. I have the column names (excel sheet) coming in as the field names from the database and would like to rename them.  I tried to use -> msxsl:node-set($vColumnLabels)/label[@id = current()/@name] -> but I got the following error: "The URI urn:schemas-microsoft=ocm:xslt does not identify an external Java class"

--> Is there a way I can rename the column names that output to the excel file?  For example, one of the names of the fields is FOR, but I want to rename it to FORWARDED so people will know what it means.  So there has to be some type of IF statement in there.

2. Do I have to specify the output file name (results.xml)?  I'm testing right now, but think its a temp file and the name could change... -> <xsl:variable name="input" select="document('results.xml')"/>

Like I said, as of now, the below statement tells to use the XML document ResultSet.xml.  Is this 100% necessary?  In the XML, I am telling it to use the XSL, so why would I need to specifiy this here?  The problem is that the XML I am requesting does not come back with a predefined filename, I think its a temp file that gets changed...does that make sense?

<xsl:variable name="input" select="document('ResultSet.xml')"/>
