Converting .htm to .asp

By Savon19 ·
My company's (rather basic!) website was developed by using MS Word and then saving to webserver as .htm file.

Now, I have Front Page 2000 and would like to make changes, add to it, etc. It "makes sense" to convert to .asp. But are there problems with doing that? Also, can you just "save as" and change the extension?

Link took me to ms, but no page... I might be able to find something in the area you directed, but I will have to search around...

First you have to check whether your webserver supports ASP pages!
If you created your original Wbpages with Word I would suggest to use Macromedia's Dreamwever to convert. It removes all that unnecessairy stuff that word inserts into Html pages.
If your pages are static, not linked to a database or something like that, there is not too much gain in converting Html to ASP pages

I didn't create website - it was created by someone else some time ago using Word. I don't have Dreamweaver, so I am trying to find a solution using FrontPage, which I do have. The server (local) is Windows 2003 & has been configured to support .asp format. Since I will be using Front Page, I just want to have the proper format without affecting previous formatting. (Unfortunately, I don't know html at this time, so that isn't an option now.) I believed that the "gain" in converting would be that I would have more options in formatting, as well as the other features available in Front Page.
