Hi Charles

The problem is b :) I did only post some examples, the two XML files I'm using are huge and contain many courses.

I have created an stylesheet that output to XSL-FO, but is not working as it should.

This is what I'm doing to create the TOC:

       <xsl:for-each select="//course[course_group=$group]">
        <xsl:sort select="title" />
         <fo:block text-align-last="justify">
           <xsl:attribute name="internal-destination">
            <xsl:value-of select="generate-id()" />
           <xsl:value-of select="title"/>
           <fo:leader leader-pattern="dots" />
            <xsl:attribute name="ref-id">
             <xsl:value-of select="generate-id()" />

It's creating the TOC, but there are not unique and and not using the global parameter
year, So my question is how to create the TOC with unique courses using the
global parameters group and year.

Happy X-MAS

That's more or less a restatement of your original post. What I'm trying to find out is specifically what problem you are having. Here is a list of possible problems.

Is your problem:
a) You don't know enough about XSL-FO to write the XSLT stylesheet?
b) You don't know how to get a set of unique nodes when the selection criteria would otherwise return duplicates? (I don't see where in the sample you sent there would be any duplicate nodes, so perhaps you left something important out?)
c) You don't know how to pass a parameter to your stylesheet from the calling program?
d) You don't know how to declare and use a parameter in an XSLT stylesheet?
e) You don't understand how to create an XSLT stylesheet and you're hoping that a list reader with time on his hands will write it for you?

Hello, charles, thx for the response.

My problem is creating the stylesheet, I need to create a sthylesheet that
output XSL-FO, with a title (the group fullname), a TOC and the courses
of the course group given using the global parameter.

For example is the group is "AFAM"

The stylesheet should create an XSL-FO document with the AFAM acronnim
to full name, a TOC with all the courses inside the AFAM group, and courses

African American Studies

  Images of Africana People in

On page 2, the course information, in this case Images Of Africana People...

This courses has to be unique.
Any comments ?
