i have the following variable within a function which finds 2 matching records

<xsl:variable name="test"      select="
 //Itin/ServInfo/Serv[@Code='ED' and @Type= 'RED'][Name/@Number =$Id]/Text"/>

 I want to filter even further by matching against a value within Text.
So my function would receive this param as $DocNum

<Text>AS KK1 06L18MAR/CHAIR/ACCPT/USD2000/100RC CCVIXXXXXXXXXXXX0001EXPXXXX 8312312270746</Text>

The $DocNum I would be filtering against is the last number included in this string. (8312312270746)

so that then variable "test" would return that entire text bc it found matching DocNum as well.

XSLT2 solution

<xsl:variable name="test"      select="
 //Itin/ServInfo/Serv[@Code='ED' and @Type= 'RED'][Name/@Number =$Id][ends-with(Text, $DocNum)]/Text"/>

XSLT1 Solution

<xsl:variable name="test"      select="
 //Itin/ServInfo/Serv[@Code='ED' and @Type= 'RED'][Name/@Number =$Id][substring(Text, string-length(Text) - string-length($DocNum) + 1 , string-length($DocNum))]/Text"/>

I used the XSLT21 solution and this returned two instances of <text>. It did not filter by DocNum
is there a way to use the "contains" function to filter?

is $DocNum equal to the number, or equal to the number in brackes?
In the latter case you need to filter the brackets first

I assumed it was important that the numbered string was at the end

Try
<xsl:variable name="test"      select="
 //Itin/ServInfo/Serv[@Code='ED' and @Type= 'RED'][Name/@Number =$Id][contains(Text, $DocNum)]/Text"/>

If Serv having the correct Text has two Text nodes, you will get them both
Use this instead then

<xsl:variable name="test"      select="
 //Itin/ServInfo/Serv[@Code='ED' and @Type= 'RED'][Name/@Number =$Id]/Text[contains(., $DocNum)]"/>
