Code List Schemas

Build Code List Schema Help

Build an XML Schema file for code sets from an Excel spreadsheet.

  • Use the sample spreadsheet as a template for generating: template.xls.
  • The first row will be used as the type name. The second row is the definition of the code set that will be used as the definition of the type. The third row labels the columns as Code and Description. And the rest of the spreadsheet is the codes and the definitions. The Spreadsheet can have multiple tabs. Each tab will be used as a new Type and Simple Type.
  • Here is an example zip file generated from the template: For section 508 compliance, it is possible to view this file with: Excel Viewer
  • The namespace schema location will specify the file to use for the codelist schema.
