Excellent Joreg......thanks a million.

Any idea how I can get the "next 50" and "previous 50" links to work.

Thanks again

Hello Kenneth,

you can pass parameters to the stylesheet. In your case for example the
number of the first element to show in the list:

<xsl:param name="first" select="1"/>
<xsl:param name="count" select="50"/>

 > <xsl:template match="DATALIST">
 > <table cellpadding="5" cellspacing="0" border="0">
 > <tr>
 >   <td width="135"><u><font color="green">Company</font></u></td>
 >   <td width="330"><u><font color="green">Address </font></u></td>
 >   <td width="100"><u><font color="green">Phone </font></u></td>
 > <td width="100"></td>
 > </tr>
 >   <xsl:apply-templates select="customer"/>

changed to:
<xsl:apply-templates select="customer[position() >= $first][position()
&lt;= $count]"/>

 > </table>
 > </xsl:template>
> <xsl:template match="customer">
> <tr>
> <td valign="top"><a><xsl:attribute name="href">
> adminViewCompanyByID?companyid=<xsl:value-of select="id"/>
> =<xsl:value-of select="invoicename"/></xsl:attribute><xsl:value-of select
> invoicename"/></a></td>
> <td valign="top"><xsl:value-of select="invoiceaddress"/></td>
> <td valign="top"><xsl:value-of select="phone"/></td>
> </tr>
> </xsl:template>
