I will be using a VBA function in Access to post an XML request to a URL.  According to the documentation the following headers were included.  The question is what is Content-Length and do I need to include it with the post. The XML document is just a small variable that contains the accountid, user, pswd, vehicle and a short messagetext.  

POST /AsciiWebService/AsciiService.asmx HTTP/1.1
Host: TeletracXMLGateway
Content-Type: text/xml; charset=utf-8
Content-Length: length
SOAPAction: "https://xmlgateway.xxxxxx.net/SendOutboundMessage"


Thanks,

It tells how long the message body is for that HTTP Response. You should include it.

Thanks for the reply kravimir.  

How do you calculate the Content-Length???  Currently, I'm using Len(strMsgData).  Will that work???
