Flat File Schema Problem

Flat File Schema Problem

Flat File Schema Problem


I am trying to create a schema for an inbound flat file.

At the root node the file is delimited in that there are CR's as the end of line delimiter and the pre-processor adds a delimited line to the top of the file (comma seperated). The rest of the records have no field delimiter.

I have created plenty of outbound schemas with similar properties that work fine but I cannot get the editor to validate an instance of this file. I have played around with the settings on a trial and error basis to see if I could come up with anything but I continually get the same error message "the parser cannot find the required delimiter: "" (0x000d)."

Does anyone have any ideas as to what I might be doing wrong?
