Thanks and Sorry, the XML was just a piece since it was too long. I just deleted the wrong Attribute for the demo. <g>..

When I put in both ways I get no data. I remove the IF and I get all data.

I want it to say something like:
IF PREVIOUS_PAGE is empty don't display Information...

<xsl:if test="@PREVIOUS_PAGE != ''"> I would guess, but nothing, not even an error occurs

I found a website:

But all examples are simple with no attributes. Doesn't anyone have a site showing XML and it's entirety?

I don't see any PREVIOUS_QUERY attributes in your XML, so it's unlikely
they'll get selected. :>)
Try if test='string(@PREVIOUS_PAGE)' or stay with your @PREVIOUS_PAGE != ''
The data appears as it should when the test is removed because the default
templates are invoked.
I hope this helps


In my XSL I have : <xsl:for-each select="CONTENT"> <xsl:if test="@PREVIOUS_QUERY!=''"> <a><xsl:attribute name="href">default.asp<xsl:value-of select="@PREVIOUS_QUERY" /></xsl:attribute>Previous Page</a><br/> </xsl:if> </xsl:for-each>

This IF Statement causes NO DATA to appear.   Take out the If statement and
all data appears as it should.
