Ah maybe not SOAP then ?

The sample code I have makes no reference to this.

The GeocodeService.GeocodeRequest errors as not defined so I assumed it was simply a case of adding the appropriate Imports?

   Private Sub MakeGeocodeRequest()

        Dim Results As String
        Try
            ' Set a Bing Maps key before making a request
            Dim key = "Bing Maps Key"

            Dim geocodeRequest As New GeocodeService.GeocodeRequest()

            ' Set the credentials using a valid Bing Maps Key
            geocodeRequest.Credentials = _
            New GeocodeService.Credentials() With {.ApplicationId = key}

            ' Set the full address query
            geocodeRequest.Query = "1 Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA"

            ' Set the options to only return high confidence results
            Dim filters() As GeocodeService.ConfidenceFilter = _
            {New GeocodeService.ConfidenceFilter() _
            With {.MinimumConfidence = GeocodeService.Confidence.High}}

            Dim geocodeOptions As New GeocodeService.GeocodeOptions() _
            With {.Filters = filters}

            geocodeRequest.Options = geocodeOptions

            ' Make the geocode request
            Dim geocodeServiceInstance As New GeocodeService.GeocodeServiceClient("BasicHttpBinding_IGeocodeService")
            Dim geocodeResponse = geocodeServiceInstance.Geocode(geocodeRequest)

            ' Use the results in your application.
            Results = geocodeResponse.Results(0).DisplayName

        Catch ex As Exception
            Results = "An exception occurred: " & ex.Message

        End Try

    End Sub

why not using the soap service if you need it?
i assume you use visual studio so add the service reference and run your code.

OK never used a service reference before.  Is the namespace section in the dialog related to the name GeocodeService in the code?

screenshotyes, once you add the service reference, you would be able to use:
Dim geocodeRequest As New GeocodeService.GeocodeRequest()
