I am brand new to xml and am making slow progress.

I have the attached xml Invoice and Stylesheet that I am trying to marry up.  It is now at the stage where is is bringing back most of the details, however it is only returning the first line of the invoice.

In the attached example there are 2 lines, but only detail of the first is being displayed.  I have tried using the </xsl:for-each> command but all I am getting is a blank screen.

Is this the right command to use?  Where should I be placing it?

Thanks, but still only 1 Invoice detail line is appearing.  Is it the </xsl:for-each> command that I need to use to get the second detail line to appear (from the xml example)?  I have tried adding it in to no avail

You need a for-each there indeed...
(around line 200)

Note that also the context then changes
Here is how that wtr> construct should be

            <xsl:for-each select="si:Details/si:Detail">
            <tr>
              <td><xsl:value-of select='si:LineNo'/></td>
              <td><xsl:value-of select='si:Products/si:Quantity'/></td>
              <td>F12406</td>
              <td><xsl:value-of select='si:Products/si:SellerProductDescr'/></td>
              <td></td>
              <xsl:choose>
		    <xsl:when test="/si:ABWInvoice/si:Invoice/si:Header/si:InvoiceType/@Code='INV'">
                </xsl:when>
                <xsl:otherwise><td></td></xsl:otherwise>
	        </xsl:choose>
              <td class='sectTitle'>Total Tax</td>
              <td>&#160;</td>
              <td class='summary'>
                <xsl:value-of select='si:Summary/si:TotalTax' />
                <xsl:if test='not(string-length(si:Summary/si:TotalTax))'>
                  <div class='warn'>Missing</div>
                </xsl:if>
              </td>
            </tr>
            </xsl:for-each>

I have added it it as below, the third tdL <td>F12406</td>, appears twice, once for each line.  but the Line No, Quantity and Product Description are now blank.  What could be causing these to be omitted?

<xsl:for-each select="si:Details/si:Detail">
            <tr>
              <td><xsl:value-of select='si:Details/si:Detail/si:LineNo'/></td>
              <td><xsl:value-of select='si:Details/si:Detail/si:Products/si:Quantity'/></td>
              <td>F12406</td>
              <td><xsl:value-of select='si:Details/si:Detail/si:Products/si:SellerProductDescr'/></td>
              <td></td>
              <xsl:choose>
                <xsl:when test="/si:ABWInvoice/si:Invoice/si:Header/si:InvoiceType/@Code='INV'">
                </xsl:when>
                <xsl:otherwise><td></td></xsl:otherwise>
              </xsl:choose>
              <td class='sectTitle'>Total Tax</td>
              <td>&#160;</td>
              <td class='summary'>
                <xsl:value-of select='si:Summary/si:TotalTax' />
                <xsl:if test='not(string-length(si:Summary/si:TotalTax))'>
                  <div class='warn'>Missing</div>
                </xsl:if>
              </td>
            </tr>
                  </xsl:for-each>

You should have pasted the lines I copied...

The error is here
             <td><xsl:value-of select='si:Details/si:Detail/si:LineNo'/></td>

The for-each brings you in context of the node it visits
<xsl:for-each select="si:Details/si:Detail">
inside the for each your context is the si:Detail element

so you should not do
             <td><xsl:value-of select='si:Details/si:Detail/si:LineNo'/></td>
but
             <td><xsl:value-of select='si:LineNo'/></td>

as I did in the code snippet you should have used

I hope this helps
