Hello Experts, I got a task that need to complete. We need to file and report to regulator on a quarterly basis. Our compliance team has been filling the information through the web portal but lately they want to switch to use xml file. The content can be fill in much quicker instead of browsing the page on the web. I got a xml template from regulator with the questions but don't understand where to enter content or how to answer the questions.  Please see below for example. Box 160 is asking for highest NAV. Where/how do I input the answer? Also, box 162 is regarding an answer Yes or No. How/where should i input that in the XML file?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<xs:schema xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" attributeFormDefault="unqualified"
           elementFormDefault="qualified" xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
  <xs:element name="EasyFileForm">
    <xs:complexType>
      <xs:sequence>
        <xs:element name="Box0160" type="efInteger" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1">
          <xs:annotation>
            <xs:documentation>Statement: Cover</xs:documentation>
            <xs:documentation>Enter the highest NAV during the Reporting Period:</xs:documentation>
          </xs:annotation>
        </xs:element>      
        <xs:element name="Box0162" type="efYesNo" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1">
          <xs:annotation>
            <xs:documentation>Statement: Cover</xs:documentation>
            <xs:documentation>Have you filed an SEC Form PF for this pool in lieu of the CFTC Filing?</xs:documentation>
          </xs:annotation>
        </xs:element>
        <xs:element name="Box0163" type="efYesNo" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1">
          <xs:annotation>
            <xs:documentation>Statement: Cover</xs:documentation>
            <xs:documentation>
              Does this pool only invest in other pools?
            </xs:documentation>

You are looking at XSD file - XML Schema Definition. It specifies structure of XML file.
XML file should be like the following

<EasyFileForm>
   <Box0160>123<Box0160>
   <Box0162>No<Box0162>
   <Box0163>Yes<Box0163>
....
</EasyFileForm>

Open in new window


You should enter values between specified in XSD tags

Thank you for replying to my post.  I'm clueless on how to enter the information.  Should I be creating an xml file answering the question in your example:  <box0160>1234<box0160> or answering it using the same file?
You should create XML file, which contains user input like my example, acceptable values are restricted by XSD rules
