Jep, thanks for your help...

Actually, the "saxon:evaluate-node($xpath)" won't work properly, but the
simple "saxon:evaluate($xpath) is successfull.

Thanks ;-)

Hi there,

Overlooked the fact that you were using concat. Sorry.

But I think the concat is not used properly. From you comment below, I
understand that you try to
concatenate two parts of an XPath expression and to evaluate that. In you code
you are actually
retrieving the document and combining the string value of the full document
with the second part of
the XPath expression:

	<xsl:variable name="mainXML_node"
	<xsl:for-each-group select="concat($mainXML_node,$path)"

You probably want to do something like:

<xsl:variable name="xpath">
   <xsl:value-of select="@XPath" />

<xsl:for-each-group select="saxon:evaluate-to-node($xpath)" ... >
