XMLParseFile: Validating XML File Against XML Schema

I am having problems using the XMLParseFile function to
validate an XML file against an XML Schema generated by a
source external to our organization.

The XML file and XML Schema are stored locally in the same

Scenario as follows:

1.   Schema received as an Email attachment from an outside
      source (i.e. external to our organization).

2.   Attachment saved to disk:


3.   XML file generated from an external source datawindow
      SaveAs method:


4.    XMLParseFile first used to check XML document for
being well-       formed (XML document has no reference to

       ls_fullpath = C:\myDirectory\xmlDoc.xml

       ll_return = XMLParseFile(ls_fullpath)

       Return code of 0 indicated that XML document

5.    Reference to schema included in XML document and
       XMLParseFile used for validation.

       ll_return = XMLParseFile(ls_fullpath, ValAlways!,
                                             True, True,

       -1 was the return code.

       Powerbuilder Help states that -1 indicates a parsing

       Help also states that 'if the XML document fails
validation or is
       not well-formed XMLParseFile returns -1'.

       Step 4 indicated that XML file was well-formed.

       Why did validation fail?

       Was the XSD file (coming from an outside source) not

6.    XSD file was tested for being well-formed as part of
       the debugging process.

       ls_fullpath = 'C:\myDirectory\schemaDoc.xsd'

       ll_return = XMLParseFile(ls_fullpath)

7.    Execution of XMLParseFile generated error message:

      " Error parsing XML document......
       ...The primary document entity could not be opened:
       ID='C:\myDirectory\schemaDoc.xsd'  "


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

XML Document:

       <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"
      -<res:myDoc attribute1="value1"
          attribute2="value2" attribute3='value3"

I am working with PowerBuilder 9.0

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm work with Power Builder 9 and I am importing data from XML file to 
datawindow, but the parse error -11 appear. In my machine of development 
it works well, but in the server of the application it returns this 
error. Could you all help me in this?

Possibly a path issue?  Are you sure the required dll files for XML stuff are in your path on the server machine?

Validating XML file with XML schema
I want to be able to edit an XML file in browser. I open the XML file, read its contents and put it into a multi-line textbox for the user to edit it. Now, when the user wants to save the changes by pressing the save -button, I want to check if the XML data still is valid. For this I think the XML schema is perfect, right? Now, how can I write an function that takes a string parameter (which contains the whole XML file data from the textbox) and validates it against a schema file? I created the schema by passing a 100% valid XML file to the Visual Studio┬┤s "Create Schema" tool. The...

XML in, XML out
Hi All (and a happy holiday to those that will get a break), I am trying to read in an XML file of addresses. I need to remove all the address data from the file where code =~ /^000/ (there are none in the example data below). I need to reproduce that data 'as is', so I need to honour the tag structure, although the order of the tags doesn't need to be honoured. I have been trying to use XML::Simple and I had a go with XML::Smart but I haven't been able to get the results I want. My best effort is below (with XML::Simple).

How to convert XML file into XML Schema
How to convert XML file into XML SchemaAzharPirana Dargah I am not sure it makes sense to "convert" an XML file into an XML schema. What makes sense and what you can do is "infer" a schema from an XML instance document. Visual Studio can do that for you for example, as can other XML editors. If you want to do it programmatically in the .NET framework then you can do it since .NET 2.0 with the class http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.xml.schema.xmlschemainference.aspxMartin Honnen --- MVP XMLMy blog hi Azhar, Open a xml file uasing Visual Studio.

XML Schema and two XML files.
There is the situation... 1.) I have an XML schema file. 2.) I have an XML file that does not conform to the schema file, but contains data that I want to force to conform to the XML schema. So I have a set of XML from point A in it's own particular XML format. Then I have a desired XML format in which I want the XML to conform to. I am just wondering what the best way to implement this is. I figured I could just write a stylesheet that will convert XML A to XML B. Is there a way to use the schema and a mapping scheme through .NET to do this work for me? Thanks in advance ...
