Data view ows_author field has additional characters

  Asked By: Urjita    Date: Feb 08    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2310

I've created a dataview using a XML web services connection to an
announcements list on another site collection. When I insert the
ows_author field it puts the following characters in front of the
name: "1#;". Does anyone know why it is showing these additional
characters? How do I get rid of them?

As these names are the internal names it will always come up
with the characters. To get rid  of them use the XSL functions and use the
following instead:


That should sort it.

I am a newbie to data  views; can you give me steps on how to use the
XSL functions rather than just inserting the data field?
