need to remove the "\b." and "\b0." from the <Section type="Expense".

the result xml needs to be

                                                <Amount Name="GILBERTO" Source="Other" Month="01/2015">8.33</Amount>
                                    </Summary>

the obvious is that you are passing a parameter $str but declare $str1 meaning that you won't use the passed in parameter at all
That is your bug, drop the '1'
Having said that... the point of having a named template with the functionality is that you can reuse it (as a function)
So, you should drop this entirely
<xsl:template name="strip-name-inc">
         <xsl:param name="str1"/>
         <xsl:value-of select="substring-before(substring-after($str1, '\b.'), '\b0.')"/>
     </xsl:template>

and turn this
<xsl:call-template name="strip-name-inc">
into
<xsl:call-template name="strip-name">

Thank you for trying to help me out here, but being new to this and not able to understand how to make it work in a slightly different requirement , i would like to know and learn how can i remove the "\b." and \b0." from the
"Section[@type='Income']/Summary/Persons/Person/Name

the following xslt works fine to remove the "\b." and "\b0." from Section[@type='Income']/Summary/Amount/@Name
current xslt:


========xslt=========

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
    <xsl:template match="@*|node()">
        <xsl:copy>
            <xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()" />
        </xsl:copy>
    </xsl:template>
 
    <xsl:template match="Correspondance/Ledger/Section[@type='Income']">
        <Income><xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()" /></Income>
    </xsl:template>
        <xsl:template match="Correspondance/Ledger/Section[@type='Expense']">
        <Expense><xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()" /></Expense>
    </xsl:template>
                    <xsl:template match="Correspondance/Ledger/Section[@type='Deduction']">
        <Deduction><xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()" /></Deduction>
    </xsl:template>
 
<xsl:template match="Section[@type='Income']/Summary/Amount/@Name">
        <xsl:attribute name="Name">
            <xsl:call-template name="strip-name">
                <xsl:with-param name="str" select="."></xsl:with-param>
            </xsl:call-template>
        </xsl:attribute>
    </xsl:template>
-----this part of the xslt does not work it removes the whole <Name >tag from xml not from the value of the <Name>---
<xsl:template match="Section[@type='Income']/Summary/Persons/Person/Name">
        <xsl:attribute name="Name">
            <xsl:call-template name="strip-name-inc">
                <xsl:with-param name="str" select="."></xsl:with-param>
            </xsl:call-template>
        </xsl:attribute>
    </xsl:template>

   
    <xsl:template name="strip-name">
        <xsl:param name="str"/>
        <xsl:value-of select="substring-before(substring-after($str, '\b.'), '\b0.')"/>
    </xsl:template>
 
</xsl:stylesheet>
