PowerCenter supports all XML datatypes specified in the W3C May 2, 2001 Recommendation. For more information about XML datatypes, see the W3C specifications for XML datatypes at http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-2.
When you pass data to the target, make sure that it is in the correct format so that the Integration Service writes the data correctly in the target XML file.
You can change XML datatypes in the source and target definitions. You can change midstream XML datatypes in the Transformation Developer. You cannot change XML datatypes when you import them from an XML schema, and you cannot change the transformation datatypes for XML sources within a mapping.
