Consuming a .NET Webservice in VB6, and Creating a ADO RecordSet

Hi All,

I have a simple question.
Howto consume a .NET webservice form VB6.

I have tried very many methods. I currently use MSXML. Here is the piece of code that I use. This works flawlessly. It gets a XML String from the WS, and I'm supposed to parse this for my project. But I thought that is a very cumbersome process. I'd like a easier method than just parsing the XML and iterating it. I guess most of you would agree with me in this respect.

Ok lets look at the code..

Dim oSoapClient As MSSOAPLib30.SoapClient30
Set oSoapClient = New MSSOAPLib30.SoapClient30

Call oSoapClient.MSSoapInit("http://localhost/sample/Sample.asmx?wsdl")

' The WS expects 2 parameters, the username and password
' I provide the same by calling the method GetSampleData
' This returns some sample data that needs to be used in VB6 application

Dim xmlString As String
xmlString = oSoapClient.GetSampleData("ferrari@gmail.com", "march")

Debug.Print xmlString

Well, that is the end of the story. The cariable xmlString contains the XML data that which needs to be parsed. But I dont want to parse it or iterate it.

What I thought was to write this XML to a file. And convert this XML data into a Recordset that we all love to use. It's much easier to go about and manipulate later in the application.

For this I tried the following code XMLStringToRecordset()

Public Function XMLStringToRecordset(strXML As String) As Recordset
Dim objStream As ADODB.Stream
Dim oRecordset As ADODB.Recordset

Set objStream = New ADODB.Stream

objStream.WriteText strXML
objStream.Position = 0

Set oRecordset = New ADODB.Recordset

Set objStream = Nothing

Set XMLStringToRecordset = oRecordset

Set oRecordset = Nothing
End Function

But this throws some error like this "the connection cannot be used to perform this operation. It is either closed or invalid in this context".

I pressume the error is because the recordset cannot be written with plain XML, but it needs to follow the MS Schema.

Does anyone know how to go about this?
