Re: [xsl] Replicating parent elements in table with children.

Alan,



Try:



<xsl:template match="Table">
  <table>
    <xsl:apply-templates select="Table1"/>
    <xsl:if test="not(Table1)">
      <tr><xsl:apply-templates/></tr>
    </xsl:if>
  </table>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="Table1">
  <tr>
    <xsl:apply-templates select="../AvgScore | DeliveryID"/>
  </tr>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="AvgScore | DeliveryID">
  <td>
    <xsl:apply-templates/>
  </td>
</xsl:template>

This gets you most of the way there. But you haven't said *how* you want 
"the contents of <table>" when there's no table1 (so I guessed). Maybe it's 
unrelated, but you also haven't shown where the "975" comes from in your 
sample data.

I need help with the looping/xpath approach to make this happen.

As you may be able to see from my code, the solution may not be in any 
"looping/xpath" approach at all. Actually, the sooner you can unlearn to 
think about "looping" (generally speaking a foreign concept to XSLT), the 
sooner you can see how to write XSLT.



Cheers,
Wendell

<NewDataSet>
        <Table>
                <AvgScore>323</AvgScore>
                <Table1>
                        <DeliveryID>4102</DeliveryID>
                </Table1>
                <Table1>
                        <DeliveryID>4103</DeliveryID>
                </Table1>
                <Table1>

        <Table>
