Mr. Becker,
     I used your suggestion - changing

Now my problem is that I am getting multiples of the node that exists in
the secondary file, but not in the primary file.  I am getting these
results because I am running inside a template for the first file.  Thus,
each iteration produces another node with the same id in the output.
Without having to decare a template for the second file, is there a way
that I can only get one of the results inserted into the output?

Thanks again,
     Matt Youngblut

This expression
selects all NodeID nodes from your file, for which another NodeID node
which in turn has not the same string value. I guess this is true for every
NodeID node.

You want
i.e. if you don't find another node with the same string value then this
node seems to be interesting for you.

BTW, I'm a little bit confused about your xsl:for-each construction.
I believe you should access . or any other relative location path in
your xsl:if, not $YESTERDAY_PRODUCT again.
