    • Redefine the columns by editing the relevant fields.

    • Change the order of the columns using the and buttons.

  2. If the XML file which the schema is based on has been changed, click the Guess button to generate the schema again. Note that if you have customized the schema, the Guess feature does not retain these changes.
