Hi Experts,
This is the URL of the web service I'm trying to use:

https://mycompany/services.asmx/employeeDetail?employeeID=<%=Emp_Id%>&accessCode=ABCDEFG

When I replace <%=Emp_Id%> with an actual employee ID, like AB123, the following XML is displayed in my browser:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
- <EmployeeProfile_ver2 xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns="http://mycompany/services/">
  <EmployeeID>AB123</EmployeeID>
  <First_Name>Jane</First_Name>
  <Last_Name>Doe</Last_Name>
  <Email_Address>jane.doe@mycompany.com</Email_Address>
  </EmployeeProfile_ver2>
 
How could I display this employee info on my Classic ASP page instead?

Thank you for your help.

Hi,

You could use xslt to do your job.
For instance create an xslt file as the following:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0">
	<xsl:output method="html" version="4.0" indent="yes"/>

	<xsl:template match="/">
		<html>
			<head>
				<title>Employee Record</title>
			</head>
			<body>
				<table>
					<tr>
						<td style="border-style=solid"><xsl:value-of select="EmployeeProfile_ver2/EmployeeID/text()"/></td>
						<td style="border-style=solid"><xsl:value-of select="EmployeeProfile_ver2/First_Name/text()"/></td>
						<td style="border-style=solid"><xsl:value-of select="EmployeeProfile_ver2/Last_Name/text()"/></td>
						<td style="border-style=solid"><xsl:value-of select="EmployeeProfile_ver2/Email_Address/text()"/></td>
					</tr>
				</table>
			</body>
		</html>
	</xsl:template>

</xsl:stylesheet>

Open in new window


And name it "Employee Record.xslt"

Then in your xml you should add the following row:
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="C:\Users\paraskevopoulos\Desktop\temp.xslt"?>

Open in new window


so your example would be:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="Employee Record.xslt"?>
<EmployeeProfile_ver2>
  <EmployeeID>AB123</EmployeeID>
  <First_Name>Jane</First_Name>
  <Last_Name>Doe</Last_Name>
  <Email_Address>jane.doe@mycompany.com</Email_Address>
</EmployeeProfile_ver2>

Open in new window


This will dictate your xml to be transformed by the code you have in your "Employee Record.xslt". Make sure these files are in the same folder.

If you now open the xml in IE you will see a table with 4 columns. If you check the source then you will get a nicely formmated html.

Unfortunately this seems to work in IE but not out of the box in Chrome or Firefox. If this is an intranet site, then you may get away with it...

Thank you for your help. It should be OK, because it's an intranet site. But I'm not sure where I have to add the URL of the web service:
https://mycompany/services.asmx/employeeDetail?employeeID=<%=Emp_Id%>&accessCode=ABCDEFG
