Hello,
I am converting XML data into csv format. When I do this I need to add a counter to each of the addresses lines of a client (One client may contain more than one address).
Is there a way I can call a template name with a counter where by each call will be initiated with (counter + 1)?
Thanks
Suresh

If each address line his held as a child element of client
i.e.
<client>
<address></address>
<address></address>
<address></address>
<address></address>
</client>
then you can just use the position() function to get a sequential number.

Hi Andy,
I need to do bit different. If I use your example and assuming that I have 2 addresses for a client, the XML will look like following:
<client>
<address>Street1</address>
<address>City1</address>
<address>Prov1</address>
<address>PC1</address>
</client>
<client>
<address>Street2</address>
<address>City2</address>
<address>Prov2</address>
<address>PC2</address>
</client>
I need to translate this to
Street1|City1|Prov1|PC1|1
Street2|City2|Prov2|PC2|2
Thanks
Suresh

Hi,
You can get the count in the following way...
<xsl:value-of select="count(preceding-sibling::*) + number(1)" />
Basically, all the <Client> tags belogs to same parent. So we are using the sibling concept here.
