When I try to use & symbol the web service returns null. I am using AXIS.
Is there any other way to handle it so that it will not return null.

Thanks for your help.

Since SOAP requests have to be valid XML you may have to take special precautions with characters having special meaning in XML. This can get wierd if the toolkit you are using takes care of special characters.

If this was my problem my first step would be to use TCPMON (comes with AXIS) to find out EXACTLY what is being transmitted.

You can use entity references for the special characters.
