If the <id> corresponds to the first person in the ShareWebUsers.xml, it returns the correct value of the <ntname> tag. If the <id> is for the 2nd ... nth person, I get nothing.


Any idea why I can't get the ntname back for 1580652 or 3113434?

I would check the value you are using in the key expression. In the sample you provided before it looked like it should be "../@ownedby" (the ownedby attribute on the parent of the context node), which of course in the code I proposed is bound to the $ownedby variable.

Having the wrong expression there, or calling it from the wrong context node (i.e. binding the variable to the wrong node or a node that doesn't exist) will affect your results.

Try using an <xsl:message> statement (assuming your processor supports it) to announce this value en passant: that should give you a clue.

If you're still stuck, could we please see a sample of the source along with the template as it currently stands?
