myXML.Load("http://196.163.32.2/ws/tsite.xml?Request=S(V)")
For the above code line, what does "Request=S(V)" mean.
Please answer for me.

Thanks.

It would suggest that the XML page in question can handle a parameter being passed to it - to know what it means, you'd need to look at the source of the XML.

Thank for your answer. Currently I don't have that XML file. When I get that file, I will look at the source of the XML.

It is the query string part of the url, and it is used to pass parameters to the server receiving the request. Xml by itself is not actively processing anything, it just holds data, but it may be linked to a xsl transformation. It could also mean the url is dynamically serving xml content. In ASP.Net those key-value pairs can be retrieved from Request.QueryString property.
