Getting attribute Values using xslt

Last Modified: 2016-09-08
Hi All,

I am trying to get the attribute value from 100's of xml files using below code..
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
	version="2.0" xmlns:saxon="http://sf.net/saxon" xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"
	exclude-result-prefixes="saxon xs">
	<xsl:output indent="yes" method="html" encoding="UTF-8" />
	<xsl:strip-space elements="*" />
	<xsl:template match="/">
					<xsl:for-each select="//fileref/@href">
						<xsl:variable name="file" select="concat('../input.files/',.)" />
						<xsl:message>Processing ...<xsl:value-of select="." /></xsl:message>
						<xsl:for-each select="document($file)/distinct-values(//trans-unit/@id)">
							<xsl:sort order="ascending" select="." />
								<xsl:value-of select="." />

Open in new window

However, I am not getting any results.
