Thanks for both of your quick responses. You've confirmed I am on the right path. There is a lot to think about.

The user is not limited on the number of tables they can insert, so there could be several templates generated. It seems I would still end up with a variation of 3, as I would want to consolidate the number of templates to a minimum, since the user could specify multiple tables with the same number of sort statements. This would also mean I would have to output the master stylesheet on the fly, too, to get the list of includes correct. > (Do your users check off the columns they want to sort by in some user >interface?

Just limit the amount >to, say, 10, and create 10 sort statements. This would certainly be the most expedient solution in the short term. Again, Thanks!
