DataType import from external files


I have a question about DataType/MessageType import in XI. I understand that if it's CIDX or MySAP IDOC, we can import the structure into XI. What if the source message has a description externally, like ABAP data or Excel? Can we take the ABAP data or Excel data structure as input and deliver a perfect DataType object in XI instead of manually define it?

Appreciate for your help!!!

If I understand correctly, you have data in the form of Excel Doc which you want to create a data type in XI. You can import external datatypes in to XI when you have the XSD for that data. XSD - XML Schema Definition. Unless you have an XSD, you have to create the data type manually in XI.
