you saved my day. that works! with a small change


'/../' instead of '../' and a little bit wondering why there is no
function available in xslt to get the current xml file name. thanks
also to abel for his contribution... no i can't use parameters in
this case, i forgot to mention.

I would think something like:

document (concat(document-uri(/),'../','nextfile.xml')) should do
the trick.

If you are using XSLT 2.0, you can use the resolve-uri function
which will be a bit neater.

this is my first (xslt-beginner) question to this list, hoping my
question is not been answered 1 mio times. i was searching in the
archive to avoid this. :-)

i'm looking for a function that helps me to read and process
several .xml files by document(). the problem is that when i say


the document() function tries to read the xml file in the path of
the  current xslt (!) file. and that's not working for me. so i
want to  redirect the document() function to the path of the
directory of the  current .xml file.

how can i do that?


reports the whole (!) uri of the current xml file. that includes
the  path i'm looking for, like


and that's fine. but how can i now cut off 'myfile.xml' when
'myfile.xml' is always changing and i have no idea of this
filename  in the xslt and replace it with 'nexfile.xml'?

i thought to find a function to

get the current xml file name

to be able to extract that file from the uri-path-string. but i
could  not find anything about this. also trying to find a
function to find  the last '/' in a string and extracting from
that with substring-after (). uahh.

i hope to find help here. any hint is very appreciated!
