In Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004, you may change the EDI Datatype property to "String" in an EDI schema in the XSD Editor that is in visual studio .NET 2003. If you do this, you may notice in the XSD view pane that the edi_datatype property is changed to "A" when it should be "AN". Additionally, if you try to validate the schema after you make this change, you receive an error message that is similar to the following:
Is wrongly defined in: Segment element datatype is not recognized
This problem occurs because "A" is not a valid EDI Datatype property (edi_datatype) in an EDI schema. Therefore, when you try to validate the EDI schema, the validation is unsuccessful.
Note When you change the EDI Datatype property to "String", the EDI Schema Editor Extension sets the property to "A" when it should be "AN".
