I can create a date on an XSD as follows:

<xs:element minOccurs="0" name="curdate" type="xs:date"/>

Open in new window


I can define a string using xs:string

I can define integers using xs:integer

How can I define the following value (to represent cash)

999.99

Open in new window


(I will eventually have this in a repeating field and will need to sum them up, if that makes any difference)

Thanks

Make a simpleType with a restriction facet

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xs:schema xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" elementFormDefault="qualified">
    <xs:element name="currency" >
        <xs:simpleType>
            <xs:restriction base="xs:decimal">
                <xs:fractionDigits value="2"></xs:fractionDigits>
            </xs:restriction>
        </xs:simpleType>
    </xs:element>
</xs:schema>

Or if you need it to be exactly 2 fractional digits

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xs:schema xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" elementFormDefault="qualified">
    <xs:element name="currency" type="cur-type"/>
    
    <xs:simpleType name="cur-type">
        <xs:restriction base="xs:decimal">
            <xs:pattern value="\d+\.\d{2}"></xs:pattern>
        </xs:restriction>
    </xs:simpleType>
</xs:schema>

Open in new window


Note that I made the type a named simple type, so you can reuse it for the list
