call from VBA in access?  I am using Access 2003 and would like to be
able to submit an XML file via a SOAP call and get the result message

You can find the web services add-in for access 2003 here:

In many cases, you find it better off to use the msXML library in place of
the soap add-in.

It a lot less code


Public Sub GetQuote2()

     Dim objXML           As Object
     Dim strSymbol        As String
     Dim strURL           As String
     Dim strWFormat       As String

     Set objXML = CreateObject("MSXML2.XMLHTTP")

     strURL = ""
     strWFormat = "&f=sl1d1t1c1ohgv&e=.csv"

     strSymbol = "MSFT"

     objXML.Open "GET", strURL & strSymbol & strWFormat, False

     Debug.Print "Symbol = " & Split(objXML.ResponseText, ",")(0)
     Debug.Print "Trade  = " & Split(objXML.ResponseText, ",")(1)
     Debug.Print "Date   = " & Split(objXML.ResponseText, ",")(2)

  End Sub

Output when above run:

Symbol = "MSFT"
Trade  = 24.62
Date   = "9/4/2009"

The above code example happens to "GET" a CSV file, but in most cases that
web service will give you a xml file or even document. Using the MSXML
library also means you have full xml parsing at your fingertips.

You can/could also write out the xml text string to a local file and use the
XML import features we have in ms-access.

In most cases I think the above is FAR LESS work then the soap web tool kit.
and the main problem with the soap kit is it generates class modules for
each property/method of the xml service. While having inti-sense during
development is nice, adding additional web features or removing them
if the web services side is under development makes things somewhat painful
on the ms-access side to maintain that code base. Often several additional
class modules need be to added for each new method of the web service.
And, changes in the web services can often break the access side of code.

What VBA function returns cell 2 from which cell 1 gets its value?
This is a simple and possibly embarrassing question. In Excel 2002 SP3, cell 1 is on ProfitSheet and depends on cell 2, on a different sheet. Cell 1 has a UDF, so it looks like: "=MassageData(SalesSheet!$A$1)" Given that I know cell 1 at runtime, what VBA function returns cell 2? I have tried: Set Cel2 = Cel1.Precedents(1) Set Cel2 = Cel1.Precedents.Cells(1, 1) etc. but that only seems to return Cel1 itself (at least that's what the Debug Window shows). 1) Is my syntax wrong? 2) Is Excel's lack of external dependent/precedent functionality in my...
