Valid SQLXML XSD Data Types, and Sample SQL Server XML Schemas

Posted in SQLXML, T-SQL Tips and Tricks by belle on October 13, 2008

Here is a partial list of valid XSD data types for SQL Server 2005:

xsd:int or xsd:integer
xsd:decimal
xsd:date
xsd:dateTime
xsd:string
xsd:base64Binary

 

Note that in SQL Server 2005, the timezone needs to be included in the date or dateTime element or attribute value, for example:

<Authors>
    <Author AuthorID="1" FirstName="John" LastName="Doe" 
            IsIndependent="true" 
            DateJoined="1992-05-01Z" DateTimeJoined="1992-05-01T00:00:00Z"/>
</Authors>

Note the existence of the letter Z at the end of the date and datetime attributes.

 

Microsoft also provided a list of schemas in http://schemas.microsoft.com/sqlserver/. It includes the following AdventureWorks sample schemas:
