Apologies.  It's the stylesheet I can't change - or even access.  It's
constructed implicitly using the XPath expression I give it.  Unless I
give it the one I mentioned, it won't work.

What I'm doing is giving BizTalk the XPath expression needed for it to
perform a transformation for me and output a result containing the

But never mind.  The answers you all provided me with pointed me in the
right direction so that I could then sort BizTalk out.  So I'm grateful
for that.

I don't know BizTalk but you said it requires that saying "where I
have no control over the XML being used". However the solutions
suggested to you did not ask you to change the XML, the simply suggested

to change the stylesheet to e.g.


     <xsl:template match="/">
       <xsl:value-of select="count(/df:HesaValidate_Response/df:row)"/>

If you can change the stylesheet in BizTalk to use the cumbersome

count(/*[local-name()='HesaValidate_Response' and
namespace-uri()='http://HesaValidateSqlSend']/*[local-name()='row' and

why can't you change it as suggested? Both are changes to the stylesheet


You do not even need to put the namespace declaration on the
xsl:stylesheet element if you can't change that, doing


     <xsl:template match="/">
       <xsl:value-of xmlns:df="http://HesaValidateSqlSend";

would suffice as well.
