Importing xml from web services

Hello

 

I have a database system for biology where I have to update information on species, their names etc. from a webservice every week. To do that I am offered a webservice that I can send request to and receive xml back. I will therefor set up a script that runs in the night and import 100 000 species names. The service is on this adress:

 

http://webtjenester.artsdatabanken.no/Artsnavnebase.asmx/TaksonFraID?TaksonID=4515

 

The XML I get back seems to me to be understandable though I have never worked with XML/XSL before. I understand that I need some XSL stylesheet to avoid the error message I get when I try import -> XML data source;

"XML/XSL information is not enough to proceed with import/export."

 

Is there somebody out there that can help me with this task? I even may pay something for it if somebody could write it ready for me so that "It just works"!!

 

Happy for all kind of help!!

Best regards
