hi The result of following for-each statement is <Depot/> and not as

<xsl:for-each select="LDL"> <xsl:for-each

This is an xpath syntax error as you can not start element names with
digits. had you used different names the filter .='FF' would mean the
for-each was iterating over a single element the 1st_Name element in the
first G2. That element only has text content ('FF') soo all the
following value-of would select nothing as they are selecting elements
(once they are fixed to use legal names)
<Depot> <xsl:value-of select="3rd_Logical"/> <xsl:value-of
select="2nd_Logical"/> <xsl:value-of select="3rd_Logical"/>
<xsl:value-of select="4th_Logical"/> <xsl:value-of
select="5th_Logical"/> <xsl:value-of select="6th_Logical"/> </Depot>
</xsl:for-each> </xsl:for-each> ********************** <LDL> <G2>
<G502>  <1st_Name>FF</1st_Name>

This is not well formed you can not start element names with a digit. This will be a fatal error and XSLT will not start.
