Thank you Andrew, that worked perfectly. For some reason I could not get David
Carlisle's method to work. I was not even getting multiple files outputted.
Something in ALTOVA (the engine I am using) was not liking the for-each line.

I recently had to do something similar, so perhaps you could modify
what I did to fit your situation.  My problem was that I had a list
of n items and I wanted to group the list by the first two items,
then the next two items, etc.  This is basically what I came up

<xsl:for-each-group select="$values"
  group-by="ceiling(position() div 2)"
  <xsl:variable name="first"  select="current-group()[1]"/>
  <xsl:variable name="second" select="current-group()[2]"/>
  <!-- ... -->

So I'm thinking that you could do:

<xsl:for-each-group select="DATA_FILE/CUSTOMER"
  group-by="ceiling(position() div 5)"
  <xsl:result-document ...>
