ASP.NET (VB) getting XML doc from WebService as large string object
Posted on 2009-05-04
I am making a call from my ASP.NET (with VB) to a WebService (not writte7n in any Microsoft related app). This WebService returns an XML document, but in what the owner of the WebService calls a LARGE CHARACTER OBJECT - basically just a string object that can handle a pretty big file.
I can not define an XML file object type for this WS' output type in VB as it tells me they are not the same type. If I use a STRING type it accepts it, but as soon as the data that comes in hits the string limit the program fails.
What data type can I use that will allow me to get this XML data from this WebService that I can then convert back into an XML document?
Thanks in advance.
