Hi,

I'm new to XSD and was wondering if I could include multiple complex types into one element.  For example, I have two complex types NameType and AddressType.

=====

  <xs:complexType name="NameType">
    <xs:sequence>
      <xs:element name="FirstName" type="xs:string" />
      <xs:element name="LastName" type="xs:string" />
    </xs:sequence>
  </xs:complexType>

  <xs:complexType name="AddressType">
    <xs:sequence>
      <xs:element name="Country" type="xs:string" />
      <xs:element name="Zip" type="xs:string" />
    </xs:sequence>
  </xs:complexType>

=====

I would like to create a root element that includes both the NameType and AddressType.  I was able to include them if I create "sub-elements" (i.e. SubA and SubB below).  However, I just want the elements in NameType and AddressType to be directly under RootInformation (without any sub-elements).  Can that be done? Thank you in advance for your help.

  <xs:element name="RootInformation">
    <xs:complexType>
      <xs:sequence>
        <xs:element name="SubA" type="tns:NameType" />
        <xs:element name="SubB" type="tns:AddressType" />
      </xs:sequence>
    </xs:complexType>
  </xs:element>
