Hello together,

I'm trying to change the page header text on every document section, but somehow on every page I get the result of the first section instead of the current one.

What I'm trying to achieve is something like this

Section 1:
Header: "List of Content"
Body: Table with content

Section 2:
Header: "Definitions"
Body: Some text

Section 3:
Header: "Customer Data"
Body: Table with data


But when processing the result looks like this:

Section 1:
Header "List of Content"
Body: Table with content

Section 2:
Header: "List of Content" (instead of "Definitions")
Body: Some Text

Section 3:
Header: "List of Content" (instead of "Customer Data")
Body: Table with data


I have to use XPath 1 and XSLT 1.
Is it even possible to create the desired result? A simple how to would be very nice.

Thank you in advance.

It seems to work just fine for me using StyleVision Version 2021. In XSLT 1.0 mode, the attached PDF is produced from the also-attached design file. Which version of StyleVision are you using? Perhaps it's best to contact Altova Support directly for this one.

example.pdf (7kb) downloaded 74 time(s).
example.sps (4kb) downloaded 72 time(s).

Big thank you K101 for your quick reply.

Unfortunately I've only access to a StyleVision Version 2017. Can you provide me a XSL-FO file? Maybe I can see what I was doing wrong.

Hello,

I managed to solve the issue.

My failure was to create document sections within templates and conditions, cause I wanted to show/hide some pages by user selection.


The previous sps looked like:

Section: Content of report
Content...

if (showDefinition)
Section:
Header: Definitions
Content: Text
end if

for each customer
Section:
Header: Customer data of [customerName]
Content: Table of data
end for


This didn't work. But if the sps looks like this, it works quite fine

Section:
Header: Content of report
Content...

Section:
Header: Definitions
if (showDefinitions)
Content: Text
end if

Section:
Header: Customer Data
for each customer
Content: Data of [customerName]
Table with data


Edit 2021-01-14:
This generates empty pages if I want to skip parts in the report. Currently no solution
