validating xml doc with multiple schemas using wildcards

I am trying to validate a xml file with two schema files cust.xsd and
cust1.xsd. The schema file cust.xsd allows addition of elements from
another schema cust1.xsd by using xs:any wildcard.

cust.xsd - schema
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<xs:schema targetNamespace ="urn:xmlns:sys apex-com:customer"
elementFormDefa ult="qualified"
xmlns="urn:xmln s:sysapex-com:customer"
xmlns:mstns="ur n:xmlns:sysapex-com:customer"
xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
<xs:element name="Customer" >
<xs:complexType >
<xs:sequence>
<xs:element name="FirstName " type="xs:string " />
<xs:element name="LastName" type="xs:string " />

<xs:any namespace="##ta rgetNamespace" processContents ="strict"
minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbo unded" />
<xs:any namespace="##an y" processContents ="lax" minOccurs="0"
maxOccurs="unbo unded" />
</xs:sequence>
<xs:attribute name="customerI D" type="xs:intege r" />
<xs:anyAttribut e namespace="##an y" processContents ="skip" />
</xs:complexType>
</xs:element>
</xs:schema>

cust1.xsd - schema
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<xs:schema
targetNamespace ="urn:xmlns:sys apex-com:address"
elementFormDefa ult="qualified"
xmlns="urn:xmln s:sysapex-com:address"
xmlns:mstns="ur n:xmlns:sysapex-com:address"
xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
<xs:element name="Customer" >
<xs:complexType >
<xs:sequence>
<xs:element name="Address" type="xs:string " />
<xs:element name="City" type="xs:string " />
<xs:element name="State" type="xs:string " />
<xs:element name="Zip" type="xs:string " />
</xs:sequence>
</xs:complexType>
</xs:element>
</xs:schema>

cust.xml - This has to be validated against both cust.xsd and
cust1.xsd

<cust:Custome r customerID="123 45" numPurchases="1 7"
xmlns:xsi="http ://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
xmlns:cust="urn :xmlns:sysapex-com:customer"
xsi:noNamespace SchemaLocation= "file://c:/per/Schemas_nn/new1/cust.xsd"

xsi:schemaLocat ion="urn:xmlns: sysapex-com:address
file://c:/per/Schemas_nn/new1/cust1.xsd"
xmlns:addr="urn :xmlns:sysapex-com:address">
<cust:FirstNa me >Dare</cust:FirstName>
<cust:LastNam e >Obasanjo</cust:LastName>
<cust:PhoneNumb er >425-555-1234</cust:PhoneNumbe r>

<addr:Address>2 001 Beagle Drive</addr:Address>
<addr:City>Redm ond</addr:City>
<addr:State>W A</addr:State>
<addr:Zip>98052 </addr:Zip>

</cust:Customer>

Both schemas validate OK. However when I validate cust.xml with the
schemas, I get the following error in MSXML parser using VS Studio
2003. "Although this XML document is well-formed it contains a
structure that data view cannot display. The
urn:xmlns:syspa ex-com:address:Adr ess element is not declared".
I have suspicion that the xsi:schemaLocat ion syntax in my cust.xml
referring to the path location of my schema file on the c drive as
file://c:/per/Schemas_nn/new1/cust1.xsd is causing the error. I know
the cust1.xsd is in the right location.

I don't know any better.

Please advise.

Why are you using noNamespaceSche maLocation although cust.xsd defines
elements in a namespace? You need to provide the locations of the
schemas with schemaLocation, not with noNamespaceSche maLocation e.g.

xsi:schemaLocat ion="urn:xmlns: sysapex-com:address
file:///c:/per/Schemas_nn/new1/cust1.xsd urn:xmlns:sysap ex-com:customer
file:///c:/per/Schemas_nn/new1/cust.xsd"

Thank you. It took care of the original error I had. But a new error
comes up.
Here is the revised cust.xml and error message.

cust.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<cust:Custome r customerID="123 45" numPurchases="1 7"
xmlns:xsi="http ://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
xmlns:cust="urn :xmlns:sysapex-com:customer"
xmlns:addr="urn :xmlns:sysapex-com:address"
xsi:schemaLocat ion="urn:xmlns: sysapex-com:customer
file:///f:/per/pats/new1/cust.xsd
urn:xmlns:sysap ex-com:address
file:///f:/per/pats/new1/cust1.xsd" >

<cust:FirstNa me >Dare</cust:FirstName>
<cust:LastNam e >Obasanjo</cust:LastName>
<addr:Address>2 001 Beagle Drive</addr:Address>
<addr:City>Redm ond</addr:City>
<addr:State>W A</addr:State>
<addr:Zip>98052 </addr:Zip>
</cust:Customer>

Error Message:
The given name Customer matches at least two names in the collection
object with different namespaces.

How can I fix this problem.

Thanks for your help!

What exactly do you want to achieve? Do you know about xs:import and
then xs:element ref to import and reference elements from a different
namespace? I don't think you need xs:any to use elements from different
namespaces.

As for the error message, which tool exactly do you use for validation
that gives that error message?

Hi, I hope someone can please help me. I'm having a lot of trouble with schema files in .NET. I have produced a very simple example that uses "include" to include other schema files. It all works with SPY, but when I pick "Validate Schema" from the .NET 2003 menu, it fails with message: "Type XType is not declared." As I hinted at in my subject line, I suspect that it has to do with including another schema multiple times.

Hello, I need to remove the DTD reference from an xml document, the reason for this is that we want to validate against a schema instead (which we have locally). It takes up to a minute to fetch all documents referred to in the DTD, and as we have no use for them I want to remove the reference. I'm using XmlReaderSettings to pass in the xml document and the schema, but when I loop through the reader it goes and tries to get
