I have used the Muenchian

for the different groupings.

Go back to the key table and count the number of members of the table for which the Muenchian method was used to collect common values.

For example, if you used

  //transaction[ generate-id(.)=
                 generate-id(key('bydates',original_request/inquiry/@date)) ]

then you can get the count of those by that date using:

count( key( 'bydates', original_request/inquiry/@date ) )

I hope this helps.
