Hi Experts,

I need some help formulating an XSL template that will output what I need from the attached XML file.

For each <tsfile> I need to locate the last <p> which has <id>[2] = 0.
Then return all <p>'s after the above position()

I've had a go, but I'm still learning XSLT and not having much luck.

Thanks
<?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes"?>
<h_xml_store>
  <tsfile site="A">
    <variable variable="200.00">
      <p>
        <id>1 Jan</id>
        <id>20</id>
      </p>
      <p>
        <id>2 Jan</id>
        <id>0</id>
      </p>
      <p>
        <id>3 Jan</id>
        <id>1</id>
      </p>
      <p>
        <id>4 Jan</id>
        <id>2</id>
      </p>
      <p>
        <id>5 Jan</id>
        <id>0</id>
      </p>
      <p>
        <id>6 Jan</id>
        <id>1</id>
      </p>
    </variable>
  </tsfile>
  <tsfile site="B">
    <variable variable="200.00">
      <p>
        <id>3 March</id>
        <id>14</id>
      </p>
      <p>
        <id>4 March</id>
        <id>0</id>
      </p>
      <p>
        <id>8 March</id>
        <id>1</id>
      </p>
      <p>
        <id>9 March</id>
        <id>2</id>
      </p>
    </variable>
  </tsfile>
</h_xml_store>

sounds like you need this
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
   version="1.0">
    <xsl:template match="node()">
        <xsl:copy>
            <xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>
            <xsl:apply-templates select="node()"/>
        </xsl:copy>
    </xsl:template>
    <xsl:template match="variable">
        <xsl:copy>
            <xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>
            <xsl:apply-templates select="p[id[2] = 0][not(following-sibling::p[id[2] = 0])]/following-sibling::node()"/>
        </xsl:copy>
    </xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>
