        Hi Stephen,

        Yes, adding reference to any other .NET project perfectly works but not for Biztalk Projects

        Error Information – Failed to add a web reference

        I found this reply from other groups -‘ BizTalk doesnt support Array types’

            Do you know what type of error you are getting? Are you using the Community BizTalk Sharepoint Adapter?

            I have a lab that uses the adapter for some basic posting. You can check it out here:

            Hope this helps.

              Sorry, I have never tried that.

              Have you tired adding the reference to a .net project to see if that worked?

                Looks like your web service takes Arrays? That’s not supported in BT 2004 WS Adapter. You will need to use the WSE 2.0 Adapter or wrap your web service call in .net code and call it in an expression shape.
