If you'd like to supply a small but complete sample source document and stylesheet, rather than incomplete fragments, then I'm sure we'll be able to tell you what's going on.

I now that the position() reset after a loop is ended and I am not expecting some thing else .
In my case the position () provides correctly the POSITION for each loop in the FIRST loop but
in the other loop (xsl:for-each select="taxtotal) the position() function provides ever ONE and does not increment!!!
Regarding number function I do not now how to use it here. and I think you are wrong, in XSLT you canbt save value to a variable and use it global!
Kind regards

In for each the context will switch, so position will be reset inside
You could keep position in a variable if you need it.

Hi all
I use the positon() funciton to build a counter.
I use it in a for-each loop under another for-each. The result is but ever 1.
Strange, but in the same document in the first for-each loop it works fine (bellow is first loop, for-each select="Item)
sample document look like this:

<xsl:for-each select="Item"> <it> <xsl:value-of select=" position()">

<xsl:value-of select=" position()">
//position  = 113
<xsl:for-each select="InvoiceLine">
    <xsl:for-each select="taxtotal">
<xsl:value-of select=" position()">


kind regards
