Hello Michael; Thank you for your reply. And I apologize for providing too little detail. I'm trying to arrive at a solution and XSLT is one option I'm looking at. Also as this will be run in BizTalk 2006 I have some limitations in environment: I can't add third party tools that might help but I can code my own assembly for referencing in BTS if I need to. So right now I'm doing some due diligence as to the 'best' way to satisfy my client's needs. Suffice it to say, your expertise and advice here is greatly appreciated. Given an XML structure where EDL24 may occur 'n' times: <EDL20> <EDL24> <POSNR> <MATNR> <HIPOS> <QUANTITY> <WEIGHT> <HAZMAT> <EXTMATNR> </EDL24> </EDL20> And a series of business rules like the following and of similar complexity, do you see an issue with XSLT being able to accommodate? If HIPOS = NULL & qty = 0 & weight = 0 & HAZMAT != NULL Then remove element (Store/retain MATNR for carrying forward) If POSNER begins with 9 & HIPOS != Null & MATNR = stored MATNR Then include element in outbound XML Else remove element End If If POSNER begins with 9 & HIPOS != Null & MATNR = stored MATNR Then include element in outbound XML End If Thanks for your time and input!
