Lookup tables with variable keys

Is it possible to use a lookup table if the key changes? In the example below, a variable is used as the key, but it's not working because XSLT variables are not really variable.

Here is the XSL:
<lookup:NAICS_Classification_Percentage>
	<FacilityNAICS Classification="ccc" Percentage="60">Two Code Inc. Industrial Heartland 123456</FacilityNAICS>
	<FacilityNAICS Classification="ddd" Percentage="40">Two Code Inc. Industrial Heartland 456789</FacilityNAICS>
</lookup:NAICS_Classification_Percentage>

<xsl:variable name="ThisFacilityNAICS" select="concat(/Report/OrganisationNameEn, ' ', /Report/FacilityNameEn, ' ', /Report/Report_Detail/IdentificationProfile/Facility/NAICS_Codes/NAICS/NAICSCodeEn)"/>

<xsl:value-of select="$ThisFacilityNAICS"/>, <xsl:value-of select="document('')//lookup:NAICS_Classification_Percentage/FacilityNAICS[. = $ThisFacilityNAICS]/@Classification"/>, <xsl:value-of select="document('')//lookup:NPRI_GHGIS_ID/CompanyFacility[. = $ThisFacilityNAICS]/@Percentage"/>

Open in new window


Here is the XML:
<Report>
	<OrganisationNameEn>Two Code Inc.</OrganisationNameEn>
	<FacilityNameEn>Industrial Heartland</FacilityNameEn>
	<Report_Detail>
		<IdentificationProfile>
			<Facility>
				<NAICS_Codes>
                    <NAICS>
                        <NAICSCodeEn>123456</NAICSCodeEn>
                    </NAICS>
                    <NAICS>
                        <NAICSCodeEn>456789</NAICSCodeEn>
                    </NAICS>
				</NAICS_Codes>
				</Facility>
				</IdentificationProfile>
				</Report_Detail>
</Report>

It is absolutely not clear what you want to do
But I assume you are looking for dealing with a combined key?
Wel, combined keys can easily be achieved by concatening the keys
or by having an "and" inside the predicate.

Can you explain what exactly you want to do?

Sorry, the snippet did not have enough context.

I want to loop through the list of NAICS codes in the XML file, and use a composite key (consisting of Organization, Facility, NAICS) to look up the corresponding Classification and Percentage in the lookup table. Because this facility has more than one NAICS code, the $ThisFacilityNAICS variable cannot be set to a specific value.

<lookup:NAICS_Classification_Percentage>
	<FacilityNAICS Classification="ccc" Percentage="60">Two Code Inc. Industrial Heartland 123456</FacilityNAICS>
	<FacilityNAICS Classification="ddd" Percentage="40">Two Code Inc. Industrial Heartland 456789</FacilityNAICS>
</lookup:NAICS_Classification_Percentage>

<xsl:for-each select="/Report/Report_Detail/IdentificationProfile/Facility/NAICS_Codes/NAICS">
	<xsl:variable name="ThisFacilityNAICS" select="concat(/Report/OrganisationNameEn, ' ', /Report/FacilityNameEn, ' ', /Report/Report_Detail/IdentificationProfile/Facility/NAICS_Codes/NAICS/NAICSCodeEn)"/>
	<NAICSCode>
		<NAICSClassification>
			<xsl:value-of select="document('')//lookup:NAICS_Classification_Percentage/FacilityNAICS[. = $ThisFacilityNAICS]/@Classification"/>
		</NAICSClassification>
		<Code>
			<xsl:value-of select="NAICSCodeEn"/>
		</Code>
		<ActivityPercentage>
			<xsl:value-of select="document('')//lookup:NAICS_Classification_Percentage/FacilityNAICS[. = $ThisFacilityNAICS]/@Percentage"/>
		</ActivityPercentage>
	</NAICSCode>
</xsl:for-each>

just change the lookup

      <FacilityNAICS Classification="ccc" Percentage="60" organisation="Two Code Inc." facility="Industrial Heartland " NAICS="123456"/>

and go for

FacilityNAICS[@organisation = ...][@facility = ...][@NAICS = ...]/@Classification

no need to compound in the lookup, it is better to keep them seperated

What Kind of Coding Program is Right for You?

There are many ways to learn to code these days. From coding bootcamps like Flatiron School to online courses to totally free beginner resources. The best way to learn to code depends on many factors, but the most important one is you. See what course is best for you.

I tried that but it's not working.

<lookup:NAICS_Classification_Percentage>
	<FacilityNAICS Org="Two Code Inc." Facility="Industrial Heartland " NAICS="123456" Classification="ccc" Percentage="60" />
	<FacilityNAICS Org="Two Code Inc." Facility="Industrial Heartland " NAICS="456789" Classification="ddd" Percentage="40" />
</lookup:NAICS_Classification_Percentage>

<xsl:for-each select="/Report/Report_Detail/IdentificationProfile/Facility/NAICS_Codes/NAICS">
	<xsl:value-of select="document('')//lookup:NAICS_Classification_Percentage/FacilityNAICS[@Org = /Report/OrganisationNameEn][@Facility = /Report/FacilityNameEn][@NAICS = NAICSCodeEn]/@Classification"/>, 
	<xsl:value-of select="document('')//lookup:NAICS_Classification_Percentage/FacilityNAICS[@Org = /Report/OrganisationNameEn][@Facility = /Report/FacilityNameEn][@NAICS = NAICSCodeEn]/@Percentage"/>
</xsl:for-each>

that is a bit tricky (call it the higher science of XSLT :-)

[@Org = /Report/OrganisationNameEn]

because of the document('') the context in teh predicate is the XSLT file, no longer the source XML file. If you need to do that, you need to bind the source to a variable first

<xsl:variable name="source" select="."/>
at the top level of your stylesheet

then you can do this
[@Org = $source/Report/OrganisationNameEn]

How about the third predicate? How would I specify the context?

[@NAICS = NAICSCodeEn]

Geert BormansInformation ArchitectCommented:
Hi, I am just giving suggestions, so I have not looked into your stylesheet in detail (will only have time tomorrow, will visit family soon)

As soon as you start looking inside the lookup table, the context will be set to that lookup table, so outside the source XML
In order to get the old context back, you need storage in a variable
You can store the current context at every level

just store away (at the right context) the NAICSCodeEn value as $this-NAICSCodeEn
and use it in the lookup [@NAICS = $this-NAICSCodeEn]
