Getting data from outside world

Question

I want to practise handling webdata on F#. Specifically, I am trying to use the Worldbank examples from tryF# videos to help me understand the mechanism,  but I am in trouble here.

Can I get access to worldbank data from F#script and execute on F# interactive?

by writing:

#r @"..\Worlbank.TypeProvider\bin\debug\............?? (F# interactive has not accepted it)

Do I have to add any tool to VS2012 to access outside data??

The site fsharp.org is a good place to start finding useful set of F# libraries.

For data access it has a page with listed type providers and links to get them:
