Fix xsl to handle conditional value change

I'm trying to get my xsl to conditionally change this specific content

<idoc:ItemRelativePath>
NVLAP - Quality
</idoc:ItemRelativePath>

to this:

<idoc:ItemRelativePath>
NVLAP/Quality
</idoc:ItemRelativePath>

if encountered.

My XSL doesn't work. I'm still getting "NVLAP - Quality" in my output. What have I got wrong?

Here's the xsl I'm working with:

<xsl:stylesheet version="2.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:idoc="http://ns.inmagic.com/Presto/1.0/ContentConnector/DocumentParameters" exclude-result-prefixes="xsi">
      <xsl:output omit-xml-declaration="no" indent="yes"/>
      <xsl:strip-space elements="*"/>
      <xsl:template match="node()|@*">
            <xsl:copy>
                  <xsl:apply-templates select="node()|@*"/>
            </xsl:copy>
      </xsl:template>

      <xsl:template match="idoc:ItemName[normalize-space(.)]">
            <idoc:ItemName>
                  <xsl:value-of select="replace( ., '\.[^\.]+$', '')"/>
            </idoc:ItemName>
            <idoc:ItemFileName>
                  <xsl:value-of select="."/>
            </idoc:ItemFileName>
      </xsl:template>
      <xsl:template match="idoc:ItemRelativePath">
            <xsl:choose>
                  <xsl:when test="idoc:ItemRelativePath = 'NVLAP - Quality'">
                  <idoc:ItemRelativePath>
                        <xsl:value-of select="NVLAP/Quality"/>
                  </idoc:ItemRelativePath>
                  </xsl:when>
                  <xsl:otherwise>
                  <idoc:ItemRelativePath>
                        <xsl:value-of select="."/>
                  </idoc:ItemRelativePath>
                  </xsl:otherwise>
            </xsl:choose>
      </xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>

I see two issues

<xsl:template match="idoc:ItemRelativePath">
             <xsl:choose>
                   <xsl:when test="idoc:ItemRelativePath = 'NVLAP - Quality'">

1. the context of the template is idoc:ItemRelativePath
there is no child idoc:ItemRelativePath...
you need <xsl:when test=". = 'NVLAP - Quality'">

2. I see white-space before and after, so you need to normalize first
                   <xsl:when test="normalize-space(.) = 'NVLAP - Quality'">

the test in 2. should get you the fix

Hi Geert...  I'm not having success with your suggestions. Possibly, I've misunderstood you. Here's an input sample I'm working with.

Well, you also missed the single quotes
 <xsl:value-of select="NVLAP/Quality"/>
should be
 <xsl:value-of select="'NVLAP/Quality'"/>
or even better
 <xsl:text>NVLAP/Quality</xsl:text>

But, in the true spirit of XSLT
you would not use a xsl:choose
but a more specific template

    <xsl:template match="idoc:ItemRelativePath[normalize-space(.) = 'NVLAP - Quality']">
                <idoc:ItemRelativePath>
                    <xsl:text>NVLAP/Quality</xsl:text>
                </idoc:ItemRelativePath>
    </xsl:template>

and no extra template for when that value is not found, simply because that is redundant with the default processing

This stylesheet does exactly what you want

<xsl:stylesheet version="2.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
    xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
    xmlns:idoc="http://ns.inmagic.com/Presto/1.0/ContentConnector/DocumentParameters"
    exclude-result-prefixes="xsi">
    <xsl:output omit-xml-declaration="no" indent="yes"/>
    <xsl:strip-space elements="*"/>

    <xsl:template match="node()|@*">
        <xsl:copy>
            <xsl:apply-templates select="node()|@*"/>
        </xsl:copy>
    </xsl:template>

    <xsl:template match="idoc:ItemName[normalize-space(.)]">
        <idoc:ItemName>
            <xsl:value-of select="replace( ., '\.[^\.]+$', '')"/>
        </idoc:ItemName>
        <idoc:ItemFileName>
            <xsl:value-of select="."/>
        </idoc:ItemFileName>
    </xsl:template>
    
    <xsl:template match="idoc:ItemRelativePath[normalize-space(.) = 'NVLAP - Quality']">
                <idoc:ItemRelativePath>
                    <xsl:text>NVLAP/Quality</xsl:text>
                </idoc:ItemRelativePath>
    </xsl:template>
