Convert XML to ASP variables

Hi Experts

We are attempting to use the Campaign Monitor API. We can successfully retrieve information. But need advice and examples of how to turn that information into ASP variables.

Below is an example of the code that is delivered back that needs to be manipulated.

Thanks for your time.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
    <soap:Body>
        <Client.GetListsResponse xmlns="http://api.createsend.com/api/">
            <Client.GetListsResult xsi:type="ArrayOfList">
                <List>
                    <ListID>d4945449063b88ca30326b11fb2b6ef3</ListID>
                    <Name>List1</Name>
                </List>
                <List>
                    <ListID>4bc44de19a3830d5f332abd032a7da7f</ListID>
                    <Name>List2</Name>
                </List>
                <List>
                    <ListID>09c0f936874d9e132b5155082242acc3</ListID>
                    <Name>List3</Name>
                </List>
            </Client.GetListsResult>
        </Client.GetListsResponse>
    </soap:Body>
</soap:Envelope>

that is delivered back to you from the web service?  Usually a SOAP Envelop is sent to the service...

I guess you could process it anyways, like normal XML...

try out the below:
