Ok Mike,
So I am not using the templates

I have the following structure for the xsl.

<saxon:preview mode="preview" elements="Products"/>
 <xsl:template match="/">
      <xsl:variable name="product-numner" select="."/>
      <xsl:variable name="FILE"
   <saxon:output file ="{$FILE}">
  ---    process data ---

and the transformastion fails for an xml file of 20 Mg ( i would have
thought 20Mg is reasonable .. but anyway  ), anything above 10 Mg fails.
The results of the above transformation seems to be output to the screen as
opposed to the output to the file defined by $FILE. This is unusual
behaviour which i dint expect.I wonder if this is the bug with saxon 5.5.1 .
I am now going to check this with the later versions of the Saxon. ( Saxon
Please advice
