DTSXMLValidationType Enumeration

Specifies the type of validation that the operation uses. This enumeration is only used when the OperationType is Validate. The default is an XML Schema, which is a value of XSD.

Namespace: Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Tasks.XMLTask
Assembly: Microsoft.SqlServer.XMLTask (in microsoft.sqlserver.xmltask.dll)


Public Enumeration DTSXMLValidationType
public enum DTSXMLValidationType
public enum class DTSXMLValidationType
public enum DTSXMLValidationType
public enum DTSXMLValidationType


Member name Description
DTD Specifies that the validating parser is to retrieve the document type definition (DTD) and ensure that the document conforms to the grammar that the DTD describes.
XSD Default. Specifies that the document is validated by using the XML Schema validation services.


The following code example shows this enumeration being used to set the ValidationType for the task.
