Josh, it seems like this code loops over the first node of every
different GLAccountNumber.  Then, it looks like an inner loop of all
nodes that match the node held in the outer loop.  Is this correct?  I
would have never thought of this.  I don't even really understand how it
works.

Can you explain this for me:

<xsl:for-each select="AccountLineItem[GLAccountNumber[not(. =
preceding::GLAccountNumber)]]">

Thanks.

Your problem is here:
<xsl:if test="not(GLAccountNumber = following::GLAccountNumber)">

following::GLAccountNumber is returning the next GLAccountNumber in
document order, not in the order that the for-each is iterating over the
elements.

One solution would be to group the AccountLineItem elements together by
GLAccountNumber and then output the subtotal after processing each
GLAccountNumber. 

<xsl:key name="account-by-number"
match="/ArrayOfAccountLineItem/AccountLineItem" use="GLAccountNumber"/>

<xsl:template match="ArrayOfAccountLineItem">

	<!-- iterate over distinct account numbers -->
	<xsl:for-each select="AccountLineItem[GLAccountNumber[not(. =
preceding::GLAccountNumber)]]">
		<xsl:sort select="GLAccountNumber" data-type="text"
order="ascending"/>
		<!-- iterate over all matching account numbers -->
		<xsl:for-each select="key('account-by-number',
GLAccountNumber)">
			<xsl:sort select="substring(SettleDate,1,10)"
data-type="text" order="ascending"/>
			<xsl:sort select="LineItemID" data-type="number"
order="ascending"/>

			<xsl:apply-templates select="."/>

		</xsl:for-each>

		<!-- Summary line, used to be in xsl:if in the
AccountLineItem template-->
		<tr>
			<td colspan="11">
				&#xA0;
			</td>
		</tr>
		<tr>
			<td colspan="4">
				&#xA0;
			</td>
			<td colspan="2" class="fieldName"
align="center">
				Total by Object Code:

			<td class="bottomFieldInfo" align="right">
<xsl:value-of select="format-number(sum(key('subTotal',
GLAccountNumber)/Amount[. &gt; 1]), '#.00')"/>
			</td>
			<td>
				&#xA0;

			<td class="bottomFieldInfo" align="right"
style="padding-right:5px">
<xsl:value-of select="translate(format-number(sum(key('subTotal',

			</td>
			<td colspan="2">
				&#xA0;
			</td>
		</tr>
		<tr>
			<td colspan="11">

		</tr>

		
	</xsl:for-each>
</table>
</xsl:template>

<xsl:template match="AccountLineItem">

Hope this helps,
