Hello again

Thanks for the answer. I was think if there was a way of using ./ancestor::*

Something like this

<xsl:variable name="path" select="./ancestor::*"/>
<xsl:variable name="elements" select="document($doc)//*"/> 

and then find THE element with the same ancestors.

<xsl:variable name="element" ...

Best regards
Johan Thoren

"/AAA/BBB/CCC" or "//CCC[parent::BBB]" or "//CCC[not(parent::AAA)]" or write more specific template match patterns i.e. "AAA/BBB/CCC" and "AAA/CCC" etc. Which is the best depends on what your stylesheet looks like, that is where you want to "specify to get the CCC".
