I have a complete file path. from it i need to get the file name.e.g., c:\data\xxx\filename.docfrom above string I need to get filename. which string function(s) allows me to get it?I thought of using last-index-of(..) but it does not exist in xslt. will appreciate your help. with regards,rnv

Well the current version of XSLT and XPath is the version 2.0 so with that version respectively if you use an XSLT 2.0 processor you can do e.g.

<xsl:variable name="path">c:\data\xxx\filename.doc</xsl:variable><xsl:variable name="file-name" select="tokenize($path, "\\")[last()]"/>

That way the variable "file-name" is of type string with the value "filename.doc".With an XSLT 1.0 processor you will need to check whether an extension like http://www.exslt.org/str/functions/tokenize/index.html is supported or you can make use of callable templates like in http://www.dpawson.co.uk/xsl/sect2/N7240.html#d10127e349.
