I am geeting data from a sqldatabase into a datatable:

Here is the output of my SQL Query
Manager     NoofTickets        less_15_days        15_to_30_days            morethan_30_days
X                        2                            0                              1                                   1
Y                        2                            0                              0                                   2
Z                        1                            0                              1                                   0
I have further requirement of converting that to an XML File as shown below:

<results>
<X>
<NoOfTickets>4</NoOfTickets>
<less_15_days >0</less_15_days >
<15_to_30_days  >1</15_to_30_days  >
<morethan_30_days>3</morethan_30_days>
</X>
<Y>
<NoOfTickets>4</NoOfTickets>
<less_15_days >0</less_15_days >
<15_to_30_days  >1</15_to_30_days  >
<morethan_30_days>3</morethan_30_days>
</Y>
<Z>
<NoOfTickets>4</NoOfTickets>
<less_15_days >0</less_15_days >
<15_to_30_days  >1</15_to_30_days  >
<morethan_30_days>3</morethan_30_days>
</Z>
</results>

and then apply XSL:
SO that
Entries of column Age_less_15_days is shown with Green Indicator
Entries of column Age_15_to_30_days is shown with yellow Indicator
Entries of column Age_more_than_30_days is shown with red Indicator

Can anyone help as how can i acheive this

THis XML will not work, since the element 15_to_30_days starts with an invalid character, namely a digit. Numbers are not allowed to be element names.

That is only dummy data.
Actual xml looks in the same way but it has different naming convention.

That being said, here's a stylesheet which does roughly what you want :-

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
                xmlns:ms="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:xslt"
                version="1.0">
               
<xsl:output method="html"/>

   <xsl:template match="/results">
      <table border="2">
      <tr><th>Manager</th><th><15 days</th><th>15..30</th><th>>30 days</th></tr>
      <xsl:for-each select="*">
         <tr>
            <td>
               <xsl:value-of select="name(.)"/>
            </td>
            <td style="color:green">
               <xsl:value-of select="./less_15_days"/>
            </td>
            <td style="color:yellow">
               <xsl:value-of select="./between_15_to_30_days"/>
            </td>
            <td style="color:red">
               <xsl:value-of select="./morethan_30_days"/>
            </td>
         </tr>
      </xsl:for-each>
      </table>
   </xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>
