Step1 : First create your App.config file, externally using a notepad
Step2: Right click on ur project and select ADD -> Existing Item and select the created app.config file by selecting all files under the file type.

I have worked with this before.  And the web reference when adding to the VS project will hook up to the service and create a soap type xml file that basically give the structure of the web service calls that can be made so the compiler knows.

So as long it is the SAME soap you can program it to change by doing this.

        APIref.PSAPIService apiService = new APIref.PSAPIService ();
        apiService.Url = <url>

APIRef is the alias name of the web service you added.
PSAPIService is the name that the web service is called
then assign the url.

Again to be clear the SOAP calls need to be identical otherwise it can produce errors.

We needed to do this so we could easily go from unit testing to qa testing to production servers with out a recompile.

Hope this helps.

You can right click your project in Visual Studio > Add New Item > Config File

It will automatically create a config file for you and then you add the necessary values.
