Let me explain my problem

My XML format will look like this.
<employee> <COLUMN NAME="SALARY">95000</COLUMN> <COLUMN NAME="NAME">ANIL</COLUMN> </employee>
<employee> <COLUMN NAME="SALARY">92000</COLUMN> <COLUMN NAME="NAME">Kumar</COLUMN></employee> .....

I wanted to sort this based on SALARY.

Approaches I tried
1) <xsl:for-each select="employee"> <xsl:sort select="COLUMN/SALARY" data-type="number"/>
<xsl:for-each select="COLUMN"> <xsl:if test="@NAME='SALARY'"> <xsl:variable select="."></xsl:variable> </xsl:if>
with this I am not able to sort

with the above code, sort is not happening.

Thanks, Anil

thanks Michael,

I tried that option too,......its not working.

Anil, apparently you gave us not enough information. "not working" is not useful. What is your input, how does your XSL look like so far (all stripped down to the absolute minimum), what is the expected output, what output do you get.

As mentioned previously, preparing such a test case for many users (myself included) solves the problem.

Best regards,

- Michael
