Hello Xiaocun,

I don't know if I understand you correctly, but my answer is: There is no problem. A key can't be passed from XSL to another, it's only a global variable, which provides easy access to the stored nodes.

If your key is declared in Organization.xsl and this file includes _base.xsl, the key() can be used there too. Why don't you easily try it? Or do you have another problem? Maybe snippets from the stylesheets will make it more clear.

  I recently had a need to pass key from one XSL to
another.  The way my XSLs are organized is that all
common templates are kept in _base.xsl, while XSL such
as Organization.xsl import the _base.xsl.
  The functionality I need to implement now is to
apply transformation from Excel date to all Extended
Attributes (XA) that has data type of "date".
  Within Organization.xsl, I keep XAs of date type in
a key, and would like to pass this key to the template
that processes XAs which is located in _base.xsl so
that I can use key() to find if a XA is of date type
or not.
  Can this be done?  If not, I suppose my fallback is
to set all XAs of date type as a node-set in a
variable, which pass onto XA template, then use
xsl:for-each within the template.
  Any comments and suggestions welcomed.

Much appreciated,
