Set MyAgent = New SoapAgent

MyAgent.AddParameter "SRLFile", "/xml/WHOIS.SRI", ""
MyAgent.AddParameter "RequestName", "Whois", ""
MyAgent.AddParameter "key", "microsoft.com", ""
'Execute the method
MyAgent.ExecuteMethod "http://soapclient.com/xml/SQLDataSOAP.wsdl", "ProcessSRL"
'show me the result!
MsgBox MyAgent.GetResponse("return")

Sample VB Code (MS SOAP 2.0)

    Dim Serializer As SoapSerializer
    Dim Connector As SoapConnector
    Dim Reader As SoapReader
    
    Set Connector = New HttpConnector
    Connector.Property("EndPointURL") = "http://soapclient.com/xml/SQLDataSoap.WSDL"
    Connector.Connect
    Connector.Property("SoapAction") = "/SQLDataSRL"
    Connector.BeginMessage 'Nothing
    Set Serializer = New SoapSerializer
    Serializer.Init Connector.InputStream
    Serializer.startEnvelope "SOAP-ENV", "http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/"
    Serializer.startBody
    Serializer.startElement "ProcessSRL", "http://www.SoapClient.com/xml/SQLDataSoap.xsd", "mns"
    Serializer.startElement "SRLFile"
    Serializer.writeString "/xml/whois.sri"
    Serializer.endElement
    Serializer.startElement "RequestName"
    Serializer.writeString "whois"
    Serializer.endElement
    Serializer.startElement "key"
    Serializer.writeString "microsoft.com"
    Serializer.endElement
    Serializer.endElement
    Serializer.endBody
    Serializer.endEnvelope
    Connector.EndMessage

    Set Reader = New SoapReader
    Reader.Load Connector.OutputStream
    
    If Not Reader.Fault Is Nothing Then
        MsgBox Reader.faultstring.Text, vbExclamation
    Else
        MsgBox Reader.DOM.xml
