PROC XSL - any experiences?

Hello,

we try to read XML files and want to transform them into TXT (CSV) files.

Does anyone have experiences with PROC XSL? How should the XSLT file look like? Does the complete functionality of XSLT work (includung INCLUDE)?

Thanks in advance  Smiley Happy

For information:

I found how to use the XSLT INCLUDE command to avoid the error message above.

I have to use the XSLT INCLUDE command together with an absolute path. Afterwards the XSLT transformation works correct.

I tried to use the PROC XSL and got an error message.

ERROR: javax.xml.transform.TransformerConfigurationException: Die Formatvorlage konnte nicht kompiliert werden.

in English:

ERROR: javax.xml.transform.TransformerConfigurationException: the format template could not be compiled.

Interesting - SAS Englisch on a German PC produces a German Error message, therefore I think that the Error is produced by the Xalan.

I put the message in a SAS problem ticket - waiting on a reaction.

But any experiences about PROC XSL are welcome.
