Hi,

My project is related to Loan transaction (in C# windows Appl). In that i want on button click It should go online and retrieve a credit report from Experian credit bureau.

Experian has a product called ‘NetConnect’ which we can utilize to interface with their servers to retrieve credit history on clients.  The idea is that when user clicks ‘experian’ the client’s name, address, dob, and SSN are put into a special xml format and then transmitted to NetConnect servers. Then we wait for a response from the server, either an error message or a text file containing the actual credit report.  The user then has the option to print or view the report.

Can anybody help me please

How to access Net Connect :
Step 1: Obtain a copy of Net Connect certified software from an Experian Certified Net Connect Vendor. You can also write your own software, which would be subject to the same certification process as a vendor.  
Step 2: Complete the Experian Access Request form for Net Connect, available at Experian’s client registration or from Customer Support at 800 831 5614. Return the form to Experian.
Step 3: Your Head Designate identifies a specific Net Connect User.
Step 4: Your System Administrator puts the Net Connect User ID into your software
Step 5: Begin accessing Net Connect

Are you doing this : You can also write your own software, which would be subject to the same certification process as a vendor ?
Do you have the SDK and a NetConnect userid ?

The sample code will be in the SDK.
You will not be allowed the SDK until you have registered and then you have to request it from Experian.
As far as I know if you develop your own software to access Experian NetConnect you will not be allowed to use it with the live service until it has been certified by Experian.
That is why most people by Experian tools from 3rd party vendors.

Have you checked this all out with Experian ?
