You will have to import a schema for the urn:schemas-microsoft-com:datatypes namespace in your parent schema, and then add a reference to the 'dt' attribute on the element PDFFILE.

Subject: BinaryBase64 Schema Validation Problem


I'm not sure if you'll be able to help me/maybe you know someone who can?
Basically I have written a schema to validate a response from a web service. It works well except I cannot get the BinaryBase64 tag to validate.

Part of the schema goes like this:

<xsd:complexType name="tyDocument">
                              <xsd:element name="DocumentType" minOccurs="1" maxOccurs="1" type="xsd:string" />
                              <xsd:element name="DocumentStatus" minOccurs="1" maxOccurs="1" type="xsd:string" />
                              <xsd:element name="PDFFILE" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1" type="xsd:base64Binary" />

Part of the xml that I'm trying to validate goes like this:

                        <DocumentStatus>Document Produced</DocumentStatus>
                        <PDFFILE xmlns:dt="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:datatypes" dt:dt="bin.base64"></PDFFILE>

The error message I get says, "Error: (-2147467259) The attribute '{urn:schemas-microsoft-com:datatypes}dt' on this element is not defined in the DTD/Schema.
at line  41, column  79"

Any idea how I get it to validate this XML? The problem is that the attribute in the XML cannot change. It has to be: xmlns:dt="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:datatypes" dt:dt="bin.base64"
Can I add this attribute to the schema easily so that it will validate it?

I'd appreciate anything you may know about it.

Many thanks,

Francis Lang
