The schema describes the structure of the XML document (number of elements, whether an element can be empty, default/fixed values, etc.) and valid entries. Schema errors occur where there is a problem with the structure or order of the file, or an invalid character is included.Schema errors prevent the validation being run in full because the file cannot be read.This means that errors cannot be traced to a particular record.Instead the position of the error in the file is given in the form of a line number in the file to assist you in identifying the problem.Tip: Using a text editor programme to open the raw data will show the line numbers.The language used to describe a schema error can be difficult to understand at first glance.In order to assist you in identifying and rectifying any errors, a glossary of terms is included below.
If however a value cannot be identified and the field is not required for the record, you should remove the field from the file altogether.
Tip: The minimum and maximum occurrences detailed in the field detail in the coding manual will inform you whether or not a field can be excluded from the record.
In this version of the error message there has been a code returned, however it does not conform to the schema and is invalid.
Schema checks ensure that the code returned is as included in the list of valid entries for the field as can be found in the coding manual.
