Hi Andreas,

There's no need to write a schema for every file inside the docx
archive. In fact Microsoft has already done this and we have included
them in our software. They can be found in the following directory at,
C:\Program Files\Altova\XMLSpy2008\Schemas\Office2007. I believe they
can also be download from
docs.htm site. In addition as you open the separate xml documents from
the archive in XMLSpy, the software will recognize the assigned schema,
allowing you to validate and edit the documents to include navigating
directly to the schemas from the Enhanced Grid View. To include may
other features.

You can check out all the Office Open XML features offered by XMLSpy


In fact our xml development tool was the first to provide support for
Office open XML formats, http://www.altova.com/OOXML_060407.html

If you need any help with our software feel free to get in touch with me

You might also want to check the OpenXML Developers Forums pages here,

Feel free to download XMLSpy from the following page,

I hope this helps!

Subject: developing schema for word 2007

Hello list,

I am new to this list and of course new to xml:schema and docx.

I want to develop a schema for MS Word 2007 to validate the content and
the structure of a word template. I use the docx format as input.

My question is do I need to write a schema for every file inside the
docx container or is it enough to write a schema just for the
document.xml file?

Thanks a lot for the help,
