I'm having a hard time with detail view urls when grouping data. I get extra spaces in the url, for example /Research-Findings/Current-Completed-Projects?%20%20%20%20%20%20%20%20udt_1588_param%20%20%20%20_detail=1857.

I cannot figure out what I'm doing wrong in the stylesheet as <a href="?{$prefix_param}_detail={udt:UserDefinedRowId}"> works otherwise. The grouping seems to be the issue. 

Here is the full stylesheet:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="" xmlns:udt="DotNetNuke/UserDefinedTable" exclude-result-prefixes="udt">

    <xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes" omit-xml-declaration="yes" />


  This prefix is used to generate module specific query strings

  Each querystring or form value that starts with udt_{ModuleId}_param 

  will be added as parameter starting with param


    <xsl:variable name="prefix_param">

        udt_<xsl:value-of select="//udt:Context/udt:ModuleId" />_param


    <xsl:param name="param_detail" />

    <xsl:key name="data-by-topic" match="udt:Data" use="udt:Topic" />


    <xsl:template match="udt:Data" mode="detail">

        <xsl:call-template name="EditLink" />

        <xsl:call-template name="ListView" />

        Category: <xsl:value-of select="udt:Topic" disable-output-escaping="yes" />

        Status: <xsl:value-of select="udt:Status" disable-output-escaping="yes" /><xsl:value-of select="udt:Title" disable-output-escaping="yes" /><xsl:value-of select="udt:Funding_x0020_Source" disable-output-escaping="yes" /><xsl:value-of select="udt:Funding_x0020_Period" disable-output-escaping="yes" /><xsl:value-of select="udt:Study_x0020_Design" disable-output-escaping="yes" /><xsl:value-of select="udt:Purpose" disable-output-escaping="yes" /><xsl:value-of select="udt:Further_x0020_Study_x0020_Details" disable-output-escaping="yes" /><xsl:value-of select="udt:Findings" disable-output-escaping="yes" /><xsl:value-of select="udt:Eligibility" disable-output-escaping="yes" /><xsl:value-of select="udt:Participation_x0020_Information" disable-output-escaping="yes" /><xsl:value-of select="udt:Description" disable-output-escaping="yes" /><xsl:value-of select="udt:Qualifications" disable-output-escaping="yes" /><xsl:value-of select="udt:Benefits" disable-output-escaping="yes" /><xsl:value-of select="udt:Application" disable-output-escaping="yes" />



    <xsl:template match="udt:Data" mode="list">

        <li class="dnnGridItem">

            <xsl:call-template name="DetailView" />


            <xsl:value-of select="udt:Status" disable-output-escaping="yes" />




    <xsl:template match="/udt:UserDefinedTable">

        <xsl:for-each select="udt:Data[count(. | key('data-by-topic', udt:Topic)[1]) = 1]">

            <xsl:sort select="udt:Topic" order="ascending" />


                <xsl:value-of select="udt:Topic" disable-output-escaping="yes" />



            <xsl:when test="$param_detail">

                <!--master-detail view-->

                <xsl:apply-templates select="udt:Data[udt:UserDefinedRowId=$param_detail]" mode="detail" />



                <xsl:variable name="currentData" select="key('data-by-topic', udt:Topic)" />

                <xsl:if test="$currentData">


                        <xsl:apply-templates select="$currentData" mode="list">









    <xsl:template name="EditLink">

        <xsl:if test="udt:EditLink">

            <a href="{udt:EditLink}">

                <img border="0" alt="edit" src="{//udt:Context/udt:ApplicationPath}/images/edit.gif" />





    <xsl:template name="ListView">

        <a href="{//udt:Context/udt:ApplicationPath}/tabid/{//udt:Context/udt:TabId}/Default.aspx">

            <img border="0" alt="Back" src="{//udt:Context/udt:ApplicationPath}/images/lt.gif" />




    <xsl:template name="DetailView">



        <a href="?{$prefix_param}_detail={udt:UserDefinedRowId}">

            <xsl:value-of select="udt:Title" disable-output-escaping="yes" />

Accepted Answer 
Remove the line breaks in the XSL in this section:

    <xsl:variable name="prefix_param">

        udt_<xsl:value-of select="//udt:Context/udt:ModuleId" />_param


so that it's:

    <xsl:variable name="prefix_param">udt_<xsl:value-of select="//udt:Context/udt:ModuleId" />_param</xsl:variable>

The spaces IN the XSL are being rendered. I ran into a similar problem recently and it drove me crazy trying to figure out what was going on.
