Thanks David.

I did try what you mentioned, but I was missing the right syntax only!

	<xsl:variable name="value1">
		<xsl:value-of select="field1"/>

why do people keep doing that?
It is a lot of typing and causes the processor to be quite inefficient,
building up a result tree fragment.

You should always just do

	<xsl:variable name="value1" select="field1"/>

Unless you actually intend to creste a result tree fragment.

Although in your case you don't need a variable at all as it would be
just as easy to use field1 rather than $value in your test expression.

As always in xslt, it's better just to select the elements you want
rather than selecting everything and then throwing something out. Your
testing of position() and grouping into 10 is done here:

<xsl:for-each select="Row[position() mod 10 = 1]">

which is way before you have looked at your field1 element.

In English your requirement is to select all Rows that don't have a
field1 of N/A, and group those rows into 10s, so that is

<xsl:for-each select="Row[field1 != 'N/A'][position() mod 10 = 1]">
