Hi,
I'm having tons of error message "Namespace prefix 'xsl' is not defined". I'm quite sure that i stuffed up something but i can't seem to find it.

Help please!

Anyway, what i'm trying to do is convert/transform the output from SQL Server 2000 to a XML which is formatted/indented by using System.Xml.Xsl.XslCompiledTransform(). See my code below...

   Protected Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Using conn As New Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("SMI_CENTRISConnectionString").ConnectionString)
            Dim cmd As New Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand("SMI_P001_XML_Download_Test", conn)
            cmd.CommandType = Data.CommandType.StoredProcedure
            conn.Open()
            Dim da As New Data.SqlClient.SqlDataAdapter(cmd)
            Dim ds As New Data.DataSet
            da.Fill(ds)
            Dim nowString As String = Now.ToString("dd-MM-yyyy hh.mm.ss")
            Dim fileName As String = "D:\TEMP\SMI_Student_Transfer_" & nowString & ".xml"
            Dim doc As System.Xml.XmlDataDocument = New System.Xml.XmlDataDocument(ds)
            Dim transform As New System.Xml.Xsl.XslCompiledTransform()

            transform.Load("D:\Inetpub\wwwroot\WebSite2\SMI_Tracker_Download3.xsl")

            Dim writer As System.Xml.XmlTextWriter = New System.Xml.XmlTextWriter(fileName, System.Text.Encoding.UTF8)

            writer.Formatting = System.Xml.Formatting.Indented
            writer.Indentation = 4
            transform.Transform(doc, Nothing, writer)

        End Using
    End Sub

....BUT for some reason i'm having tons of error messages in my xsl template.

This line:

   <xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="D:\Inetpub\wwwroot\WebSite2\SMI_Tracker_Download3.xsl" version="1.0" />

Should say:

    <xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/Transform/XSL" version="1.0" />

The xsl namespace is standards defined so needs to be as above.

Oops, back to front, that should say:

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0" />

Hello Carl Tawn,

It was originally with that information but still recieved tons of error...I've attached the new xsl snippet...

Also just found that when i hover my cursor over line 3 (<xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes" encoding="utf-8" omit-xml-declaration="no" />) on the xsl:output method part it says "XML document cannot contain multiple root level elements".

I think all of your errors are probably being cause by one small typo. You shouldn't have the / at the end of the xsl:stylesheet line, as this is closing the tag and therefore it is treating the xsl:output tag as a root element.

The line should say:

    <xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0">

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back
