I have a situation like this

In my XML I have

<personal>
<postaladdress>
<region>VA</region>
</postaladdress>
</personal>

And

<records>
<caseinformation><region>VA</region></caseinformation>
<caseinformation><region>CA</region></caseinformation>
<caseinformation><region>TX</region></caseinformation>
</records>

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


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

</xsl:if>

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

Please somebody tell me how to solve this

http://www.w3schools.com/xsl/xsl_languages.asp got a friendly tutorials on xsl,xpath,xsd and so on. do read them

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--
</xsl:if>
</xsl:for-each>
