You want something like this:

 	<xs:element name="Foo">
		<xs:complexType>
               <xs:simpleContent>
                 <xs:restriction base="xs:token">
  			<xs:enumeration value="ABC" />
  			<xs:enumeration value="123" />
  			<xs:enumeration value="DEF" />
  		     </xs:restriction> 			 
               </xs:simpleContent>
               <xs:attribute name="_Code" type="xs:string"/>
 		</xs:complexType>
 	</xs:element>

ALternatively you can define the type of Foo as an extension of FooType
(extended by adding an attribute)
