Hi

Attached please find the XML and XSLT file. In the XSLT file i need to concatenate an increment number such as

<xsl:attribute name = "geonode_id" >@geonode_1<xsl:attribute>

<xsl:attribute name = "geonode_id" >@geonode_2<xsl:attribute

etc.

How can i get increment value. Also currently when i run this XSLT i get the exception
" Cannot have a DOCTYPE decleration outside of a prolog"

Any help will be greatly appreciated

Thanks
storeloc.xsl
store-load.xml

for the DTD you need to set a serialisation expressed in the xsl:output element
<xsl:output doctype-system="storeload.dtd"/>



<xsl:template match= "/" >

	<xsl:element name = "import" >

		<xsl:apply-templates/>

	</xsl:element>

</xsl:template>

In XSLT you don't create a "increment variable"
since variable don't vary in XSLT (they are like constants)

You use the properties of the nodes to count nodes
	<xsl:element name = "GEONODE" >

		<xsl:attribute name = "geonode_id" >

			<xsl:text>@geonode_</xsl:text>

			<xsl:value-of select="count(preceding-sibling::GEONODE) + 1"/>

		</xsl:attribute>

if all you need to do for an element is lowercasing the attribute names, there is a better way, tell me and I will show you
