  • Stanislav, Thanks for your time, but what should be placed in "text()" and "pText" Commented Feb 25, 2016 at 8:28
  • text() should be replaced with path to your node in your xml file, like "/Office/Telephone/text()" - that means that all text inside all <telephone> nodes inside all <Office> will be replaced, pText is just a name of parameter in xslt - you can left it as is. Commented Feb 25, 2016 at 9:59
  • I have updated the xslt. The problem was in namespaces. Commented Feb 25, 2016 at 13:48
  • I used following website to check: xslt.online-toolz.com/tools/xslt-transformation.php . And I do not see any problems with your xml and mine xslt. Is there anything else in your xml or in your resulted xslt? Commented Feb 29, 2016 at 8:29
  • Thanks for your valuable time. I updated my xslt with some more details.and the place where i am inserting the given xslt. Commented Feb 29, 2016 at 9:48
