    The below logic should be your webservice

    public class empService : System.Web.Services.WebService
    {
    [WebMethod]
    public String getEmp(int id)
    {
    //some logic
    }
    }

    The below logic should be your client application

    public partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page
    {
    protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
    localhost.empService obj=new localhost.empService();
    String output=obj.getEmp(int.Parse(TextBox1.Text));
    }

    Refer the below article of creating and consuming webservice using an example with source code.

    Hi,

    not only in webserivce in any case if you want to return string result then your type should be "string".

    Refer below sample for your reference,

    public string methodname()
    {
    return "Hi";
    }

    You can do this in many ways.

    1. Create public List

    Create new public class having the 5 columns and assign the values into it as list. While accessing the webservice fill this list and get this as one of the output in your webservice

    2. You can go for restfull web service with JSON output.
