and the following XSL transform sheet

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
      <xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes"/>
      <xsl:template match="Updates">
            <xsl:apply-templates />
      </xsl:template>
      <xsl:template match="Update">
            <UpdateId>
                  <xsl:apply-templates select="@UpdateId" />
            </UpdateId>
      </xsl:template>
      <xsl:template match="File">
            <xsl:copy>
                  <xsl:apply-templates select="@Id" />
            </xsl:copy>
      </xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>


To achieve the following data format:

<Updates>
      <Update UpdateId="43d2a0ce-9701-4bc1-898a-3fd4673fb520">
      <File Id="E8K/XoxAQJGxNo8IWS6un0JCeFI=">
</Updates>
<Updates>
      <Update UpdateId="43d2a0ce-9701-4bc1-898a-3fd4673fb520">
      <File Id="E8K/XoxAQJGxNo8IWS6un0JCeFI=">
</Updates>
<Updates>
      <Update UpdateId="43d2a0ce-9701-4bc1-898a-3fd4673fb520">
      <File Id="E8K/XoxAQJGxNo8IWS6un0JCeFI=">
</Updates>

Note: the target data sample is repeated solely for this example.

I am trying to extract these two pieces of information using XSL and I am getting "either or" - either the UpdateId or the FileId. I am planning to load the resultant XML  into a SQL database.

Any help on this topic would be much appreciated.

cheers,

g

Hi,

I have figured out the solution.

Here is the XSL code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
      <xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes"/>
      <xsl:template match="Updates">
            <Data>
                  <xsl:for-each select="Update">
                        <Payload>
                              <UpdateId>
                                    <xsl:apply-templates select="@UpdateId"/>
                              </UpdateId>
                              <xsl:apply-templates />
                        </Payload>
                  </xsl:for-each>
            </Data>
      </xsl:template>
      <xsl:template match="File">
            <FileLocation>
                  <xsl:value-of select="@Id" />
            </FileLocation>
      </xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>
