The User Profile Change Web service namespace is an arbitrary name for a reference to the UserProfileChangeService.asmx Web service in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007.

The User Profile Change Web service provides a user profile interface for remote clients to read and create user profiles.

To use the User Profile Change Web service library, you must generate a proxy class in either Microsoft Visual C# or Microsoft Visual Basic through which you can call the various Web service methods.
