Creating Payroll XML Files


Every Payroll XML file must comply with the specifications in the appropriate Schema file. The fundamental schema is PRL-GML20170101pxs.xsd. This schema supercedes the previous schema PRL-GML20110324pxs.xsd.

We will give an in-depth example of creating valid Payroll XML files from given sample data. The example will take a fairly simple case represented by a traditional US Department of Labor WH-347 form and build a valid Payroll XML file from it. This example will spend a lot of time explaining the meaning of the rules in the schema.
