I like to to create a small application for getting shipping rate/quote from UPS. I got support document from UPS and tried but not able to use it, As I am new to XML. I created xml string and passit to url, but did not get result. Here is url samples

{forced line breaks have been applied to the code below - ee_ai_construct, cs admin}

https://www.ups.com/ups.app/xml/Rate?<?xml version="1.0"?><AccessRequest xml:lang="en-US">
</AccessRequest><?xml version="1.0"?><RatingServiceSelectionRequest xml:lang="en-US">
<Request><TransactionReference><CustomerContext>Bare Bones Rate Request</CustomerContext><XpciVersion>1.0001</XpciVersion>

I dont know whats wrong I am doing, can anyone help in this matter as well read XML response from UPS. I am stuck here. However I have successfully connected ABF/ROADWAY/FedexFreight and MyYello.

Looking forward to response from GURU's

Perhaps asking in the Web developement TA would be a good idea... There are the guys who know such stuff.

Thats fine, But I would like to use thru VB.

Sure but the URL is constructed wrong - and the specialists for that are over at the Web Developement TA not here.

Actually UPS is not allowing get rate quote for unregistered user in XML format, So I registered my self as registered user and test same url. It is working fine.
