ive got an xml schema wich is placed inside of an xml file
it is placed as one of the descendants of the first Node , this xml file represnt a table
   <xs:schema .....="" xmlns:xs="#unknown">
          <xs:element name="Table">
                <xs:element name="OrderID" type="xs:int" minoccurs="0" />
                <xs:element name="ProductID" type="xs:int" minoccurs="0" />
                <xs:element name="UnitPrice" type="xs:decimal" minoccurs="0" />
                <xs:element name="Quantity" type="xs:short" minoccurs="0" />
                <xs:element name="Discount" type="xs:float" minoccurs="0" />
        // FIELD NODES
       // FIELD NODES
       // MORE RECORDS 

i need to retrive the the name and the type of the fields in order to create an Entity that would represent a record , i cannot use built in ADO.NET function to create a dataset from this file.
i could use xmlDocument and traverse threw the schema untill finding the node with the name="table" , attribute .
im looking for a simple better looking way to do the above .
Linq to xml would of been the most appropriate way but it seems to have a problem with
Descendants("xs:element") with the ":" to be more specific .
thanks in advance .

Hello Dear
if file which you want load schema from it, is completely true , you can do this to load schema from a file to DataSet :
DataSet Dset = new DataSet();

DataSet Dset = new DataSet();

ReadXml("FileName") method of DataSet loads Schema and Data from XML file
ReadXmlSchema("FileName") method of DataSet loads just Schema from XML file

if you want to write schema and data to a XML file you can do these :
