More information:
This is a simple example of creating and invoking a web service using VB.NET and ASP.NET. This example returns a dataset from web service. The "Create web service" html document explains the step by step of how to create and invoke the the web service. The webservice_example.Zip file consists of "mywebservice.asmx.vb" , "mywebservice.vb" ,webform1.aspx. This is developed in VS.NET 1.0.

The web service as presented is not functional because it requires a SQL database with a cities table; to get it functional all you have to do is change the connection string to connect to a database, and change the sql statement.
