Hi all,

Newbie to vb so please be gentle....

I am trying to transform some xml using xslcompliedtransform and the xsltargumentlist to another xml file. The file is created, but with only a root element

The main projects.xml file is loaded into a data grid view with some basic details, once a row is clicked, i want to filter the main xml file to create a html report containing all the xml data for the selected entry.

Obviously, not the full correct xml, but is an edited structure...

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
	<Row A1="123456">
		<F49>Project One</F49>
	<Row A1="654321">
		<F49>Project One A</F49>
	<Row A1="223344">
		<F49>Project Two</F49>

The XSL being used:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> 
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="">
<xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes" />
<xsl:decimal-format name="NN" NaN="0" />
<xsl:param name="ID" />
<xsl:template match="@* | node()">
<xsl:apply-templates select="/@* | node()" />
<xsl:template match="Root">
<xsl:apply-templates select="Row[@A1=$ID]" />
<xsl:template match="Row">
<xsl:apply-templates select="@A1 | F49 | F48" />

The vb code running on a button click is

Dim oXSL As New XslCompiledTransform()
Dim oXslArg As New XsltArgumentList()
oXslArg.AddParam("ID", "", dgList.Rows(e.RowIndex).Cells(0).Value
oXSL.Transform(New XPathDocument("projects.xml"), XmlWriter.Create(dgList.Rows(e.RowIndex).Cells(0).Value & ".xml"))

The file that is created is

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><Root />

When running the transformation in XML Notepad or other xml editor, the transform works perfectly....any ideas people? Or any suggestions for a better method?

Many thanks
