XML Schema (XSD File)

I am writing my first XSD schema file for validating incoming orders for product and/or literature.  My error seems to be related to identifying a sub-grouping of order items - I want one sub-group for Products and one sub-group for Collateral (literature).  I thought I was following an example but somewhere I'm not referencing the ComplexType ("t:ProductDetails" and "t:CollateralDetails").  Can anyone see what I'm doing incorrectly?  The error I'm receiving first is:
"t:ProductDetails" must refer to an existing simple or complex type.

The XSD file is attached.

maybe you should attach the schema

- you might not have defined the simple or complex types as named types on a global level
- or there might be a namespace issue in that the "t:" prefixed namespace is not the default one

I didn't realize I could not add files of extension "xsd".  Attached is the xsd file in Textpad format.

namespace issue.
t:OrderDetails is in the sqlserver namespace.
So, you will have to import that schema to make th efull schema valid

Thanks, I don't think I fully understand the whole namespace issue as yet, as I wanted all this to be a single schema.

well, the question is then, do you really need OrderDetails to be of this type
simply make it
<xs:element name="OrderDetails" type="xs:string"/>
or if it is a complex type, copy the definition of that complex type in your own schema
and use it like this
<xs:element name="OrderDetails" type="OrderDetails"/>
