    Question

    Is it possible to add substring of z76-budget-number to form acq-full-inv-info.xsl to split the information into 2 lines?

    Trying to add field Z76_BUDGET_NUMBER results in:
    The following XML.XSL parse error messages are received:

    Error at xsl:with-param on line 119 of file:/C:/AL500/alephcom/files/XXX50/PrintTemplates/eng/acq-full-inv-info.xsl:
    XPST0017: XPath syntax error at char 31 on line 119 in {./substr(Z76_BUDGET_NUMBER,1,6...}:

    Answer

    In general you are able to use the 'substring' command to extract information from a field. For detailed description consult XSL manual.

    In this particular case information from table z76 is not available for form acq-full-inv-info.xsl.

    You can find out about the available fields using the 'View Raw XML' display output (right click on the printer symbol and choose 'View Raw XML'.) for printing.

    For acq-full-inv-info.xsl fields from z70 (vendor), z72 (vendor address) and z77 (invoice header), z75 (invoice line item), z68 (order), z13/z13u (bibliographic information) are available.

    Additional Information

    The correct field name would be z76-budget-number instead of Z76_BUDGET_NUMBER.
