Using webservice as datasource, don't get any fields

I am trying to use CR 2008 using a webservice as datasource. To test this I tried some webservices from www.webservicex.net, like this wsdl: http://www.webservicex.net/country.asmx?wsdl

I am trying to use the method GetCountries.

I am able to connect and I get a "table" named "GetCountriesResponse", but I only get two fields one named GetCountriesResult and another named internal_id. If I browse the "GetCountriesResult" field I see it contains the XML data from the webservice.

What can I do to get this working?

I also tried another webservice and same thing happened.

    I would try and get the XML being passed and use an online validator to make sure it is written correctly. As what it is generating may contain an error.

      I am pretty sure the XML generated is correct. It is a well-known service and I have tried some other as well. The XML looked fine when I looked at it.

      Know any public (simple) web services to test with?
