API integration - Microsoft Access & Royal Mail Shipping API

I require you to write code (visual basic for applications) to integrate the Royal Mail Shipping API with Microsoft Access.

I'm providing the full API specification, sample screenshots from the Royal Mail DMO (Despatch Manager Online) GUI, a sample Microsoft Access database and sample XML (request and repsonse) files.

The sample database contains a table with the API details (username and password to be confirmed before after acceptance) as well as a table with two sample orders.

The two API calls I require is createShipment() and printLabel(). You need to show the request and response for both these in the respective text fields created in the database.

1) For the first order you need to create the shipment using the address details in the database record and then print the label.

2) The second order contains an incomplete address (only TOWN and POSTCODE) so the API response will be a list of possible matching addresses - which you need to display. No further action or label printing is required.

Good luck and please ask if anything is unclear.
