We’ll assume you’ve got a web reference, let’s name it BulkData, in your Visual Studio project. At this point we need to our objects. We’ll need the standard service object, a user request object and a data request object. We can define and create those like this:

// Create request objects
BulkData.LookupUser_Request user_request = new BulkData.LookupUser_Request();
BulkData.BulkDataSoapClient service = new BulkData.BulkDataSoapClient();
BulkData.GetCarveTableList_Request request = new BulkData.GetCarveTableList_Request();

Here’s my sample code of the Request and user objects.

// request
user_request.Username = "user";
user_request.Password = "pass";
user_request.Channel = 999;

request.OrgID = 123546;

Finally we can call the method and pass across the login object and the request object to retrieve the data. It’s a good idea to do this in a Try Catch block.

// Call the method that will load the response object
  System.Data.DataTable response;
  response = service.GetCarveTableList(user_request, request);
catch (Exception ex)

Note that if something goes wrong the service will respond with an exception. You’ll want to take a look at that message returned in that exception so it can be debugged.
