The Schema is represented using the XML Schema Definition (XSD) language format of DataSets in the Microsoft .NET Framework, with some extensions for DataSets and others specific to this usage within the data definition language (DDL). DataSets define a flexible mapping from XSD to a relational schema, but then return XSD in a more canonical form. Only this canonical form is valid within data sources.

The element that corresponds to the parent of Schema in the Analysis Management Objects (AMO) object model is DataSourceView.
