I need a simple ASP.NET webpage to receive a cXML PO from a customer. The transaction is supposed to be a http POST transaction but there is very litttle information or any examples on how to actually design a page to receive the post. At this point I only care about gathering the data nas saving it as is in a text file. Nothing more. I've tried looking for anything in the Request.Files collection and saving all data posted in the Request.Form.AllKeys collection but I don't seem to be getting anything!

The customer has sent the PO as a test a couple times and gets the error:
 "<exception>com.dstm.iprocure.exception.DsSystemException: Illegal character in local name "
however no one seems to know what the heck the local name is refering to?

hi There,

lets look at the error first. The localname is a string name referring to an element in the xml fragment / document.Rember that xml gets shirty when you try to include characters that are no compliant.

Well I think I found a solution. The inbound data is not posted inteh way a conventional form is posted with data assigned to Keys. I had to read the entire input stream and then save that to a file.
t looks like the error that they were getting on the other end was actually within their system do to some incorrect settings or something and didn't have anything at all to do with our system.
Dim Length = 256
      Dim oStrm As System.IO.Stream
      Dim iLen, iBytesRead As Integer
      
      oStrm = Request.InputStream
      iLen = CInt(oStrm.Length)
      Dim arrStrm(iLen) As Byte
      iBytesRead = oStrm.Read(arrStrm, 0, iLen)
      
      Dim writeStream As IO.FileStream = New IO.FileStream(Server.MapPath("Process/" & sFileName & "-strm.txt"), IO.FileMode.Create, IO.FileAccess.Write)
 
      While (iBytesRead > 0)
        writeStream.Write(arrStrm, 0, iBytesRead)
        iBytesRead = oStrm.Read(arrStrm, 0, Length)
      End While
      oStrm.Close()
      writeStream.Close()
