small help/explanation how to continue with creation of xml

Hi there,

I'm facing with the following problem. I am creating xml file using VBA (simple print to file). One tag I have is described in the following way:

<FileAttachment> common:FileAttachment_Type </FileAttachment> [0..1] ?

where FileAttachment_Type is defined

<xs:complexType name="FileAttachment_Type">
<xs:element name="FileType" type="vr:FileType_Type"/>
<xs:element name="FileName" type="xs:token"/> 'token changed to string in newer version
<xs:element name="FileDescription" type="xs:string" minOccurs="0"/>

and FileType_Type is defined

<xs:simpleType name="FileType_Type">
<xs:restriction base="xs:string">
<xs:enumeration value="application/pdf"/>
<xs:enumeration value="image/jpeg"/>
<xs:enumeration value="image/tiff"/>
<xs:enumeration value="application/zip"/>

The xml part I have is:

but this syntax is wrong. I get message from the system: The file referenced in the XML file in FileAttachment/FileName does not exists in the loaded zip file.

Can somebody give me a hint what could be wrong?

Thanks in advance.
