Hi
I think the question was representaive enough however it is often the
'human' naure (me too) to give less but get much.....
Because the home work
was causal I used the xsl:choose for that:

<xsl:variable name="buf" select="
concat('0000000000000000000000000', arf:elmentId)"/>
<xsl:variable
name="systemId" select="arf:elmentId"/>
<xsl:choose>
<xsl:when
test="string-length($systemId) &lt; 25">
<xsl:value-of
select="concat(substring($buf, ( (string-length($buf)+1) - 25),
string-length($buf)),arf:srvDate)"/>
</xsl:when>
<xsl:otherwise>
<xsl:value-of
select="concat(substring(arf:elmentId, string-length(arf:elmentId) - 16),
arf:srvDate)"/>
</xsl:otherwise>
</xsl:choose>
    
Thanks
Henry

You don't actually ask a question but I'm
guessing you want to know how
to use string-length(), substring() and
subtraction?

Here's one way to do what I think you are asking for, padding
with
leading zeros:

<xsl:variable name="s" select=" concat('0000000000',
$input) " />
<xsl:value-of select="substring($s, 1 + string-length($s) - 10,
10)" />

Note, If this is homework, please at least take the time to
understand
the solution - maybe use pencil and paper... assuming it does work
- I
didn't try it.
