I have the attached xsd schema file. Is it possible to specify the field length and the attribute length something like :
 <xs:element name="UM" type="xs:string" length = "25" />


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<xs:schema attributeFormDefault="unqualified" elementFormDefault="qualified" xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
  <xs:element name="TransactionInfo">
    <xs:complexType>
      <xs:sequence>
        <xs:element name="Transactionheader">
          <xs:complexType>
            <xs:simpleContent>
              <xs:extension base="xs:string">
                <xs:attribute name="Firstname" type="xs:string" use="required" />
                <xs:attribute name="Lastname" type="xs:string" use="required" />
                <xs:attribute name="ShiptoCompany" type="xs:string" use="required" />
                <xs:attribute name="ShiptoAddress1" type="xs:string" use="required" />
                <xs:attribute name="Address2" type="xs:string" use="required" />
                <xs:attribute name="ShiptoCity" type="xs:string" use="required" />
                <xs:attribute name="ShiptoState" type="xs:string" use="required" />
                <xs:attribute name="ShiptoZip" type="xs:string" use="required" />
                <xs:attribute name="ShipToPhone" type="xs:string" use="required" />
                <xs:attribute name="Email" type="xs:string" use="required" />
                <xs:attribute name="PONumber" type="xs:int" use="required" />
                <xs:attribute name="Customattribute1" type="xs:string" use="required" />
                <xs:attribute name="Customattribute2" type="xs:string" use="required" />
                <xs:attribute name="Customattribute3" type="xs:string" use="required" />
              </xs:extension>
            </xs:simpleContent>
          </xs:complexType>
        </xs:element>
        <xs:element maxOccurs="unbounded" name="TransactionDetail">

            <xs:sequence>
              <xs:element name="SKU" type="xs:string" />
              <xs:element name="Quantity" type="xs:int" />
              <xs:element name="UM" type="xs:string" />
              <xs:element name="Customfield1" />
              <xs:element name="Customfield2" />

Add a "restriction" to that field:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<xs:schema attributeFormDefault="unqualified" elementFormDefault="qualified" xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
	<xs:element name="TransactionInfo">
		<xs:complexType>
			<xs:sequence>
				<xs:element name="Transactionheader">
					<xs:complexType>
						<xs:simpleContent>
							<xs:extension base="xs:string">
								<xs:attribute name="Firstname" type="xs:string" use="required"/>
								<xs:attribute name="Lastname" type="xs:string" use="required"/>
								<xs:attribute name="ShiptoCompany" type="xs:string" use="required"/>
								<xs:attribute name="ShiptoAddress1" type="xs:string" use="required"/>
								<xs:attribute name="Address2" type="xs:string" use="required"/>
								<xs:attribute name="ShiptoCity" type="xs:string" use="required"/>
								<xs:attribute name="ShiptoState" type="xs:string" use="required"/>
								<xs:attribute name="ShiptoZip" type="xs:string" use="required"/>
								<xs:attribute name="ShipToPhone" type="xs:string" use="required"/>
								<xs:attribute name="Email" type="xs:string" use="required"/>
								<xs:attribute name="PONumber" type="xs:int" use="required"/>
								<xs:attribute name="Customattribute1" type="xs:string" use="required"/>
								<xs:attribute name="Customattribute2" type="xs:string" use="required"/>
								<xs:attribute name="Customattribute3" type="xs:string" use="required"/>
							</xs:extension>
						</xs:simpleContent>
					</xs:complexType>
				</xs:element>
				<xs:element maxOccurs="unbounded" name="TransactionDetail">
					<xs:complexType>
						<xs:sequence>
							<xs:element name="SKU" type="xs:string"/>
							<xs:element name="Quantity" type="xs:int"/>
							<xs:element name="UM">
								<xs:simpleType>
									<xs:restriction base="xs:string">
										<xs:length value="25"/>
									</xs:restriction>
								</xs:simpleType>
							</xs:element>
							<xs:element name="Customfield1"/>
							<xs:element name="Customfield2"/>
							<xs:element name="Customfield3"/>
						</xs:sequence>
					</xs:complexType>

Pretty much the same way:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<xs:schema attributeFormDefault="unqualified" elementFormDefault="qualified" xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
    <xs:element name="TransactionInfo">
        <xs:complexType>
            <xs:sequence>
                <xs:element name="Transactionheader">
                    <xs:complexType>
                        <xs:simpleContent>
                            <xs:extension base="xs:string">
                                <xs:attribute name="Firstname" use="required">
                                    <xs:simpleType>
                                        <xs:restriction base="xs:string">
                                            <xs:length value="25"/>
                                        </xs:restriction>
