BizTalk Build Error: YourSchemaName.xsd: error BEC2009: Node “” – Schema reference “” is not a valid reference or does not ex ist in the current project.

We used the DTD to XSD converted to convert a DTD from one of our tr ading partners.

The schema began with this:

<code>
&lt;?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?&gt;
&lt;xs:schema xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" elementFormDefault="qualified"&gt;
 &lt;xs:import namespace="http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace"/&gt;
 &lt;xs:complexType name="LENDER_LOAN_SERVICE"&gt;
  &lt;xs:sequence&gt;
</code>

The solution was to remove this line:

<code>
 &lt;xs:import namespace="http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace"/&gt;
</code>
