Default How to find adjacent alphanumeric number

Hi All,

This is my xml
Expected output


My problem

I got to match with 'anotherbranchaccount'element which accNo is adjacent to JAMES 'accNo' .There is no sequence like main account number then extra account node.
Give me solution. I dont have any idea about that.because we have many alphanumeric comibanations like [A-Z][1 TO 100]
How to solve this issue? Please help me out.

You could sort by something like this to sort by number, then character:

<xsl:for-each select="order">
   <xsl:sort select="translate(accNo, 'ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ', '')" data-type="number"/>
   <xsl:sort select="translate(accNo, '0123456789', '')" data-type="text"/>
 <!-- do something in here -->
The translate function would replace all of the characters in the first string with the corresponding character in the second string, which if this doesn't exists effectively deletes the character.
