read response from webservice - vb.net

I need to view the results of a web serivce.  How do I reference that in VB.NET 2005.
The XML file is correct. The server is behaving as though it's getting correct data.  I opened a port sniffer and can see xml data coming back to me.  How do I capture what's being returned into a variable?
Imports System
Imports System.ComponentModel
Imports System.Diagnostics
Imports System.Web.Services
Imports System.Web.Services.Protocols
Imports System.Xml.Serialization
Module Module1
    Sub Main()
        Dim stXML As String = ""
        Dim myResult As String = ""
        stXML = ' some valid XLM file
        Dim MyService As WebReference.CWOrderInService = New WebReference.CWOrderInService()
        MsgBox("myresult = " & myResult)
    End Sub
End Module
the wsdl is:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<wsdl:definitions xmlns:wsdlsoap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/wsdl/soap/" xmlns:apachesoap="http://xml.apache.org/xml-soap" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:intf="http://com.cwi.framework.webservice.javabean" xmlns:impl="http://com.cwi.framework.webservice.javabean" targetNamespace="http://com.cwi.framework.webservice.javabean" xmlns:wsdl="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/wsdl/">

Bob LearnedCommented:
I see where the SOAP defines performActionResponse.  I would imagine that the method has a return type that you are just ignoring.
