HI,

Hopefully a simple one for someone who has done it before, I havent :P

I have a dataview web part on a page and one of the columns shows...

<td class="ms-vb">
      <xsl:value-of select="@Project_x0020_Name"/>
</td>

This simply outputs the textual display of the Project name in the column of the DVWP.

I have a seperate SharePoint site for each project located at:-

http://servername/sites/project%20name

How can i use an xsl translation so that the column of the web browser contains a link to the site, built up from the contents of the @Project_x0020_Name ?

Hope that makes sense.

I just dumped the attribute value there, you use the terminology "built up", so you might need more, but you have access to all XPath functionality (even the ddrw functions) inside the {}
