Consume a web services with a web service?

Hello,
I am using a proprietary web service.  I have to send it a guid and it returns back a xml file that has a varying number of tables. I would like to have another web services that consumes this so I can manipulate the data there and then consume that with Business Objects to make reports.
Is it possible to consume a web service with a web service, or is there a better way to do what I want.
Thanks
Chad

Are you sure you are not currently RUNNING (in debug mode)?

That removes a bunch of options.

If you are not, you should be able to select your website, rightclick and "Add Web Reference"

Yes, you can consume a web service from a web service.

It works just like consuming a web service from anyplace else.

I'm kind of gui spoiled when it comes to these. The "add a web reference" doesn't seem to be an option.
Am I missing something.
Thanks for the response.

Hello ChadMarsh,

>>The "add a web reference" doesn't seem to be an option.
How come? That's exactly what you need to do
