Topic: Passing Values from Source to Target After Filtering
Posted: Tuesday, January 27, 2015 5:20:15 PM
This is because of the way how the filters work: last-items and first-items could deliver more than one item (though in your particular case they result in one). Therefore you cannot expect them to get their result "at the same time" (sorry - trying to explain simply, maybe sounds ugly)

In any case, you can workaround by putting a variable (a simple tree with two nodes) after those both functions - you would collect the result of both of them in this variable, and though they would arrive at different time, in variable they will be then available for the rest of consumption at once in the rest of your mapping

Topic: Newbie help - different output record types
Posted: Tuesday, January 27, 2015 5:15:13 PM
You are using CSV output format, which requires all fields to be split on each line.

The quickest (and easiest) way to the mixed result you want would be to only have two output CSV fields, and to build the second field manually using concat function

Just tried out your mapping - everything works as expected...

Do you need XSLT or do you need the actual conversion. If the language doesn't matter, then take a look at Altova MapForce - there everything is very easy.

Use the "string-join" function

Does the "right" score come always first in your source data? If yes, then it is an easy task - you could use function "first-items" to get the first entry.

You cannot overwrite your file - you can build a new file as a combination of your CSV file + data from XML. That is very easy.

I would contact Altova Support with this. Don't think anybody in this forum can help you
