    CF web services driving me mad

    Leigh Mills
      Hi all,

      I am attempting to consume some asp web services using CF8 and it is driving me beserk. I can connect when I am expecting nothing than multiple string or integer fields but as soon as I hit a service which is expecting a complex structure all I get is error messages back saying that web service operation with {field names} cannot be found.

      Can anyone give me an example of how to build the complex structure as I have now read so many blogs that it is going around in circles.

      Big thanks



      if anyone is interested the wsdl bit is pasted below.

      - <s:element name="AddPurchaseOrderExternal">
      - <s:complexType>
      - <s:sequence>

              It might be signifcant that the wsdl says it wants an array and you are sending a structure.

                but all of the documentation i have read to date insists that it must be a structure as this is what allows CF to create the named elements correctly when processing??

                  Can you post the entire WSDL file?
