Creating a Web service is not difficult-just select the File|New|Project menu item, select the ASP.NET Web Service icon, and click OK. That creates a new Web service project, ready for use. Here's the code for the Web service we developed, Service1.asmx.vb:

Imports System.Web.Services

<WebService(Namespace := "http://tempuri.org/")> _
Public Class Service1
    Inherits System.Web.Services.WebService

#Region " Web Services Designer Generated Code "
Public Sub New()
    MyBase.New()

    'This call is required by the Web Services Designer.
    InitializeComponent()

    'Add your own initialization code after the
    'InitializeComponent() call

End Sub

'Required by the Web Services Designer
Private components As System.ComponentModel.IContainer

'NOTE: The following procedure is required by the Web Services Designer
'It can be modified using the Web Services Designer.
'Do not modify it using the code editor.
