Use single quotes to delimit the picture string when you used double quotes for the select attribute.


Element type "xsl:variable" must be followed by either attribute specifications, ">" or "/>".

b& b&

<xsl:choose> <xsl:when test="contains-case-insensitive($InvoicePOLineOwner, 'Law')"> <xsl:variable name="POOwnerType" select="W'" /> </xsl:when> <xsl:otherwise> <xsl:variable name="POOwnerType" select="L" /> </xsl:otherwise> </xsl:choose>

This wonbt work because
a) the scope of the variable declarations will be limited to the xsl:when and xsl:otherwise branches, respectively. There wonbt be a variable $POOwnerType outside of them.
b) the strings 'W' and 'L' arenbt properly delimited
c) there is no function contains-case-insensitive()

Use this for the variable declaration:

<xsl:variable name="POOwnerType" as="xs:string">
    <xsl:when test="matches($InvoicePOLineOwner, 'Law', 'i')">
      <xsl:sequence select="'W'"/>
      <xsl:sequence select="'L'"/>

or shorter

<xsl:variable name="POOwnerType" as="xs:string"
  select="if (matches($InvoicePOLineOwner, 'Law', 'i'))
          then 'W' else 'L'"/>

If you use an editor such as oXygen it will make you aware of all these issues, thanks to the embedded Saxon processor.

Because the XML input lacks essential parts, I was unable to validate the remainder of your XSLTbs functionality. If you want me to check it, you may send me a complete input off-list. Of course you might ask the next question on the list when you encounter the next hurdle. Keep on exploring XSLT 2, itbs totally worth it!
