Dear All

I'm struggling to find the best way to restrict an element that holds 
address data.
If the address is to be deleted it will look like this:
<address recordStatus="deleted"/>

if it's new or an update it will be along the lines of:

<address recordStatus="inserted">

with various fields being optional, these are UK addresses only.

What's the most efficient way to declare this using XSD only as I believe I 
can't say, "if recordStatus = 'deleted' then..." etc?

I believe I have to give a choice of two types but this seems tedious?
