    ADO, XML accessing a parent node's row context from a child node attributes???

    Hi All

    Extract of style sheet, I do not seem to understand how to refernce a parent
    node when I processing the
    inner <xsl:for-each select='@*'>, I want to fill the HREf with the orderID
    that is in the <xsl:for-each select='z:row'>
    outer loop I thought that preceeding a filter with ".." allow access to the
    parent node values eg.
    <xsl:value-of select="..['@OrderID']" /> would return in the current row
    context the value of the orderid
    associated with the "OrderNUmber"

    <xsl:template match="xml/rs:data">
    <xsl:for-each select='z:row'>
    <tr>

    <xsl:for-each select='@*'>
    <td nowrap="nowrap" class='Cell'>
    <xsl:choose>
    <xsl:when test=".[nodeName()='OrderNumber']">
    <a>
    <xsl:attribute name="HREF">Order.asp?OrderID=<xsl:value-of
    select="..['@OrderID']" />
    </xsl:attribute>
    <xsl:value-of match='.'/>
    </a>

    </xsl:when>
    </xsl:choose>

    </td>
    </xsl:for-each>
    </tr>
    </xsl:for-each>
    </xsl:template>

    Extract of xml ado data looks like

    <rs:data>
    <z:row OrderNumber='71826' OrderID='71826' ...bunch of other fields />

    </rs:data>
    </xml>

    Figured this out about 2 sec's after i hit the send
    <xsl:value-of select="../@OrderID" />
    or of course you can go <xsl:value-of select="context(-2)/@OrderID" />
