Hello Experts,

I'm new to sending/receiving/parsing XML on .CFM pages.  I'm working with a vendor who receiveds my XML data and sends back a confirmation number also via XML to the same .CFM page that I used to send the data.  I'm current sending the XML data successfully, but I haven't been successful in receiving/parsing the XML response which contains the confirmation number.

I confirmed with the vendor that their resopnse is being sent to the same page where I'm posting the data.  Here is an example of the data that I'm successfully sending:

<cfhttp method="post" url="">
   <cfhttpparam type="header" name="Content-Type" value="text/xml" />
   <cfhttpparam type="xml" name="xmlDoc" value="

According to the vendor, here is what I'm supposed to expect from them:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

I'm using Coldfusion MX7 running on Windows 2003 Server.  This solution is very important, any help would be greatly appreciated !
