Hi There,

I am a relatively newbie to XSLT and am having the following issue:
I want to perform an XSL transformation on an xml file, which is generated from an office spreadsheet web comopent, so as to display only the cell values (Data tags)  for each row (Workbook/Worksheet/Table/Row/Cell tags). However, I'm also getting the text contained in other tags: in this case the <c:ComponentOptions> tag values. How can I restrict the transformation so asto display only the values for each row?
The results would be displayed on the browser, so the output needsto be HTML.

Many thanks for your help!

My XSLT file is:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
      xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"             
      xmlns:o="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office"
      xmlns:x="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:excel"                               
      xmlns:ss="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:spreadsheet"
      xmlns:c="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:component:spreadsheet"
      xmlns:html="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40"
      exclude-result-prefixes="c x o html"
>
      <xsl:output method="html" indent="yes"/>
      <xsl:template match="/ss:Workbook/ss:Worksheet[@Name='Test']">
            <xsl:apply-templates/>            
      </xsl:template>

      <xsl:template match="ss:Table/ss:Row">
            <HTML><BODY>
                  <P><B>
                        <xsl:for-each select="ss:Cell">
                              <xsl:value-of select="ss:Data"/>
                        </xsl:for-each>
                  </B></P>
            </BODY></HTML>            
      </xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>       


The xml file is (Sorry if it is a bit long):

<?xml version="1.0"?>

add following templates to your xsl:
     <xsl:template match="c:*"/>
     <xsl:template match="o:*"/>

By default if there is no templates defined per namespace then  XSLT processor will execute default template which will retrurn element values.

Either that, or avoid using stuff like:

          <xsl:apply-templates/>          
 
and instead select only those nodes you're interested in:

          <xsl:apply-templates select="ss:Table/ss:Row"/>
