Sample XML File: Customers and Orders (LINQ to XML)

The following XML file is used in various examples in the LINQ to XML documentation. This file contains customers and orders.

The topic Sample XSD File: Customers and Orders contains an XSD that can be used to validate this document. It uses the xs:key and xs:keyref features of XSD to establish that the CustomerID attribute of the Customer element is a key, and to establish a relationship between the CustomerID element in each Order element and the CustomerID attribute in each Customer element.

For an example of writing LINQ queries that take advantage of this relationship using the Join clause, see How to: Join Two Collections (C#) (LINQ to XML).
