HI --

   I have this stylesheet that I'm wanting to  run a string-lengh test in.  If all of the strings are of '0' length (an empty query by a user) then I want it to return zero results.  With out this in place it will do a blank query on the DB and return all results.

Here is what I have so far

</dataset>

When I do a blank query with this in place, it will return all results.  Maybe it would be a better idea to return a $studyDate  with a value of '19000101' as this should result with no results as well.

thanks for looking

I am bit confused by what you want and what you have posted, but I'll have a go...

I want it to return zero results.
What do you mean by zero results? Do you mean 0 <attr> elements in the <dataset> element in the output? If so, then I think there may be a few extra things that you need to sort out (as I said, it is confusing what you are doing) but I think at least that you are needing to have the "not" keyword at the start of your string length test, eg. <xsl:when test="not ((string-length...... So that when they are NOT all zero length you include a <attr> element but when they ARE all zero length, the not inverts that to false and so the <attr> element isn't in the output.

Is this what you are after? If not, then can you try to explain further what you need to happen. Often a good way to specify what you want is to come up with a couple of different input scenarios and manually generate what you expect the output to be. Then if you can post the input and expected output for those few scenarios then we can help get you the XSLT to make it happen!
