I have a request that's similar in functionality to this from 2-2012.

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web_Development/Web_Languages-Standards/XML/Q_27598078.html

This time, the XML is formatted differently.

I have this XML file:

I need to output to this table:

Example output
Can I do this with classic ASP (is that possible here) or do I need to use XSLT?

Can anybody help me with this?

You have read the discussion in that question.
So you also know my answer:
The code for solving this in XSLT is far more elegant than the code for doing this in straight ASP DOM code, and undoubtly more robust, maintainable and better performing...
but it is a choice you have to make.
(you referencing an old question proves that it is an error to not accept the right answer :-)

If you would be happy with the XSLT approach, I can give it a shot.

Gertone -

You've persuaded me! Can you show me how this would be done using XSLT?

Clear and concise, isn't it?
I admit it requires understanding Muenchian grouping and keys

Thanks!

To run, I would use a method like what you posted here, correct?

<%
Dim objXML
Dim objXSLT
Dim objTpl
Dim objProc

Set objXML = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.DOMDocument")
objXML.async = False
objXML.load(Server.MapPath("your-xml.xml"))

Set objXSLT = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.FreeThreadedDOMDocument")
objXSLT.async = False
objXSLT.load(Server.MapPath("your-xsl.xsl"))

Set objTpl = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.XSLTemplate")
objTpl.stylesheet = objXSLT

Set objProc = objTpl.createProcessor()
objProc.input = objXML
objProc.transform()

Response.Write objProc.output

%>

I'm going to read up on Muenchian grouping and keys.

That code should work, indeed

this is an interesting article on muenchian

Hi Geert -

I'm back on this project and have a need to sort the column headers by size. Can this be done using the XSLT method you provided?

Today it's coming back like this:

2XL | 3XL |4XL | 5XL | 6XL |L | M | S | XL | XS

I'd like it to follow this pattern (smallest to largest):

XS | S | M | L | XL | 2XL | 3XL |4XL | 5XL | 6XL

Is that possible?

I just posted a solution in your follow up question.
by using the technique of a mapping table, you can force a sort
