Receiving return of -1 instead of conversion rate in test request



  Sorry if this is a bone head question but I'm new to this.


I loaded SoapUI and followed the Tutorials on Wednesday of last week and everything worked fine.  My system crashed hard and I had to replace it and now when I try to run the same Tutorial I receive a return value of -1 from the currency convertor in the tutorial instead of the expected 1.xxxxx.


Here is the xml I'm sending:


<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="" xmlns:web="http://www.webserviceX.NET/">


And this is what I get back:


<soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="" xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:xsd="">
<ConversionRateResponse xmlns="http://www.webserviceX.NET/">


This is the WSDL I'm using:


I cannot figure out what I'm doing wrong, could someone please help me?

      No, I have NOT resolved this and the only replies I have received are from people asking if I have.
