Dear Joris:

Thank you very much! Now the problem is PARTLY solved. After I add the non-default namespace for my xslt filter and all needed prefix, the filter works well with schema assigned data files. However, it can not transform files without schema. An opposite problem to before.

How can I do?

As the post's subject indicates, this is a namespace-related problem indeed.

The schema sets the default namespace to "";, you need to define in your xslt a namespace with this uri and a chosen prefix (I know 'xmlns="";' is already present; you need to add another non-default namespace declaration). e.g. 'xmlns:VOT="";'

Next step is to find all element names in any xpath expression or pattern in your xslt and add the prefix.

e.g. <xsl:for-each select="//RESOURCE/TABLE/FIELD" /> becomes

<xsl:for-each select="//VOT:RESOURCE/VOT:TABLE/VOT:FIELD"/>
