I have a situation like this

In my XML I have




I have to delete all the caseinformation nodes whose region is not VA.

For that i stored first region value in a variable called regionvalue and trying to compare
like this

<xsl:for-each select="caseinformation">
<xsl:if $regionvalue=<xsl:value-of select="/records/caseinformation/region"/>>


it is giving the error ,I am still in learning stage in XSLT.

Please somebody tell me how to solve this

Your xslt gives error because xsl:if test condition should go under test attribute of xsl:if..
something like..
<xsl:for-each select="caseinformation">
<xsl:if test="$regionvalue=region"/>
--execute rule--
