Hi,

I have this small HTML file, and I need to show it out in another HTML file.
Someone has told me that I can use <!-- include file="..."-->, but this line just like a comment to HTML. I have tried it, it has no effects at all.

I have also tried <IFrame name="stock" src="http://.../stockquotes.html" frameborder="no" border=0>, but it covers all my graphics files which in the same table. And it doesn't work in Netscape also.

Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Sorry if this is a repeat. I got a time-out during the first submit.


The person who told you that was KIND OF right. He was referring to Server-Side-Includes (SSI), which is enabled on many Apache servers. The command is actually
<!--#include virtual="filename.shtml"-->
NO SPACES except between include and virtual! Make sure it's exactly as shown above. I've gone days of troubleshooting to realize I had forgotten the pound (#) sign in the include command. You can find more on SSI at BigNoseBird's site:
http://bignosebird.com under Server Side Includes. This is a great command for managing websites once you're used to the commands.

Rename both files' extensions from HTML to SHTML, and it should work. What host are you with?

Indeed it all has to be done server-side. But not necessarily with the #include file.
You can also write your own javascript / vbscript-function which takes a file as a parameter and then read the file, and place it in your other html file.

Javascript:

<script language=javascript runat=server>
<!--
  var fso, f;
  fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
  f = fso.OpenTextFile("c:\\yourfile.html", 1);
  document.write(f.ReadAll());
//-->
</script>

VBScript:

<script language=vbscript runat=server>
<!--
function WriteOutText
  Dim fso, f
  Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
  Set f = fso.OpenTextFile("c:\yourfile.html", 1)
   WriteOutText = f.ReadAll
end function
//-->
</script>

Hi gr8gonzo, thanks for your help. I have tried your method but unfortunately my server is a Lotus Domino server,not Apache server. So the method doesn't work. Furthermore, my HTML coding is all in Lotus Notes Forms. So I can't do like you said "rename the html file to shtml".

CJ_S, I have tried your method too. Unfortunately, I have this error message - "Automation server can't create object". Thus your method also doesn't work for me.

rtieland, I have taken a look at your reference. I will try it out after I digest the codes.

Sorry, pls bear with me. I'm new in HTML & Javascripts.

Thanks very much for all your help.

This can be done with either SSI (server side includes as stated above or you can create a table and in the background property put the location and name of the .html file you want embeded.

Meaning that you don't have read / write permission at the server.
