Hi
Below is my element in XSD. In 'ParentSDSID' I want to send blank. Just <ParentSDSID></ParentSDSID> and it can be long.
how to form the xsd? I tried nillable="true", but is it not accepting.

Can anyone suggest me please?

<xs:element type="xs:long" nillable="true" name="ParentSDSID"/>

I don't think nillable is the answer
because then you need to explicitely set the xsi:nil attribute to make it work
is that acceptable?
<ParentSDSID xsi:nil="true"></ParentSDSID>

Here is what I would do

    <xs:element type="long-and-null" name="ParentSDSID"/> 
    <xs:simpleType name="long-and-null">
        <xs:union memberTypes="stp-long stp-empty"/>
    </xs:simpleType>
    <xs:simpleType name="stp-long">
        <xs:restriction base="xs:long"/>
    </xs:simpleType>
    <xs:simpleType name="stp-empty">
        <xs:restriction base="xs:string">
            <xs:maxLength value="0"/>
        </xs:restriction>
    </xs:simpleType>

Hi
Attached is my schema. Could you please update it ?
I am confused with your xsd structure.

I understand you are confused because the element declaration that you have is a local declaration

The snippet I sent has three simple type declarations, they should be at the global level
(in a way you could say I am extending the type library)

then you could use the type in the element declaration

<xs:schema attributeFormDefault="unqualified" elementFormDefault="qualified" xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
    <xs:element name="XYZDocStatusRequest">
        <xs:annotation>
            <xs:documentation>XYZ Message</xs:documentation>
        </xs:annotation>
        <xs:complexType>
            <xs:sequence>
                <xs:element name="Header">
                    <xs:complexType>
                        <xs:sequence>
                            <xs:element type="xs:long" name="MsgId"/>
                            <xs:element type="xs:string" name="Source"/>
                            <xs:element type="xs:dateTime" name="SendTime"/>
                            <xs:element type="xs:string" name="Action"/>
                        </xs:sequence>
                    </xs:complexType>
                </xs:element>
                <xs:element name="Body">

                            <xs:element type="long-and-null" name="ParentSDSID" minOccurs="0"/>
