Changing XML Hierarchy

I have a large number of items like this:

<row>

<class>TYPE A</class>

<field1>foo1</field1>

<field2>bar1</field2>

</row>

<row>

<class>TYPE A</class>

<field1>foo2</field1>

<field2>bar2</field2>

</row>

<row>

<class>TYPE B</class>

<field1>foo3</field1>

<field2>bar3</field2>

</row>

I'd like to separate out all the "class" fields and come up with something like this:

<class name="TYPE A">

<row>

<field1>foo1</field1>

<field2>bar1</field2>

</row>

<row>

<field1>foo2</field1>

<field2>bar2</field2>

</row>

</class>

<class name="TYPE B">

<row>

<field1>foo3</field1>

<field2>bar3</field2>

</row>

</class>

Although the end result is that I'd like to produce a large number of HTML tables that look something like this:

TYPE A:

field 1: field2:

foo1 bar1

foo2 bar2

TYPE B:

field 1: field2:

foo3 bar3

Nevermind, I think I figured it out. This seems to do what I wanted. The key was finding out how to find unique values for "class":

<xsl:for-each select="//fmp:Class[not(.=preceding::fmp:Class)]">

<p><b><xsl:value-of select="."/></b></p>

<table border="1">

<tr>

<th align="left">Field 1:</th>

<th align="left">Field 2:</th>

</tr>

<xsl:for-each select="//fmp:Class[.=current()]/parent::*">

<tr>

<xsl:choose>

<xsl:when test="position() mod 2 = 1">

<xsl:attribute name="class">clsOdd</xsl:attribute>

</xsl:when>

<xsl:otherwise>

<xsl:attribute name="class">clsEven</xsl:attribute>

</xsl:otherwise>

</xsl:choose>

<xsl:for-each select="fmp:Class/following-sibling::*">

<td><xsl:value-of select="."/></td>

</xsl:for-each>

</tr>

</xsl:for-each>

</table>

<hr/>

</xsl:for-each>

Hi Tim,

I'm trying to use a xslt style sheet with an xml export from FM version 6. The format I exported is FMPDSORESULT. Whenever I try to do anything with the xml file, it won't work correctly. A match would not be found if I use FMPDSORESULT as a match or anything like "//ROW".

To debug the problem, I exported without using a xsl style sheet. I used a program called oxygen to edit and parse the files. I had a hunch: the FMPDSORESULT element has an attribute xmlsn="http://www.filemaker.com/fmpdsoresult" so I renamed the attribute name and it worked.

How can I get this to work?

Thanks!

-Jordan
