in reply to XML SOAP Response

I don't see encoding problem in the response, the strange thing is that your SOAP response contains only one <return> tag which, in turn contains an XML stream.

If you want to use the contents of the "inner" XML, you should parse it twice: parse the SOAP response and get the contents of the <return> tag in a var, then parse the var to get the values.

Update: perhaps your problem is elsewhere. The format of your SOAP packet is really unusual, for there's no need to encapsulate an XML stream into a SOAP packet (which is XML itself). So maybe is the script generating the response to blame: it should not embed the response into the <return> tag as a string but as pure XML.

Rule One: "Do not act incautiously when confronting a little bald wrinkly smiling man."

    Thank you, I'm looking into the script that generates the response to see if it can be changed. The owner of the web service said the following as I was building the call to the web service.
    There is a single element in the request which accepts a string, but the string is XML, and as such needs to be encoded
    I think that is why its embedded within on <return> element. Unfortunately that is not something I can avoid, if that is indeed the case. Here is the soap envelope that makes the call:
    requestbody = requestbody & "<SOAP-ENV:Body><ns1:VehicleInfo >" requestbody = requestbody & "<xmlRequest xmlns:xsi=""http://www.w3.org +/2001/XMLSchema-instance"" xsi:type=""xsd:string"">" requestbody = requestbody & "<FCSDServicesRequest marketid=""1"" langu +age=""ENG"" country=""USA"" xmlns:xsi=""http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSch +ema-instance"" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation=""FCSDServices.xsd"">" requestbody = requestbody & "<Vehicles>" requestbody = requestbody & "<Vehicle vin=""1FMFU17L94LB04622""/>" requestbody = requestbody & "<Vehicle vin=""1FTRX12W88KD10648""/>" requestbody = requestbody & "<Vehicle vin=""2MEHM75W26X618474""/>" requestbody = requestbody & "</Vehicles>" requestbody = requestbody & "<ServiceRequests>" requestbody = requestbody & "<VINDecodeService>" requestbody = requestbody & "<Attribute typeid=""14"" type=""Year""/>" requestbody = requestbody & "<Attribute typeid=""1"" type=""Make""/>" requestbody = requestbody & "<Attribute typeid=""2"" type=""Model""/>" requestbody = requestbody & "<Attribute typeid=""3"" type=""Series""/> +" requestbody = requestbody & "</VINDecodeService>" requestbody = requestbody & "</ServiceRequests>" requestbody = requestbody & "</FCSDServicesRequest>" requestbody = requestbody & "</xmlRequest>" requestbody = requestbody & "</ns1:VehicleInfo>" requestbody = requestbody & "</SOAP-ENV:Body>" requestbody = requestbody & "</SOAP-ENV:Envelope>"
