Hi There

I am writing a reg exp to replace all .htm and .html links in hyperlinks to .asp ie

<A HREF=21348.htm alt="solution">Print Format</A> to
<A HREF="21348.asp" alt="solution">Print Format</A>

<a href=21348.htm#Solution alt="solution">Solution Explained</a> to
<a href="21348.asp#Solution" alt="solution">Solution Explained</a>

Here is what I have so far:
<a(.*?)href=[""']?(.*?)\.(htm)(.*?)[""']?(.*?)>

and to replace:
"<a$1href=""$2.asp$4"">"

This is extremely urgent!!!!!

Cheers,

Sam

<a(.*?)href=[""']?(.*?)\.(htm)(.*?)[""']?(.*?)>
    $1            $2           $3        $4

try this as the replacement string.

"<a$1href=""$2.asp$3""$4>"

You may also have to replace all ? with a $x so try

<a(.*?)href=[""']?(.*?)\.(htm)(.*?)[""']?(.*?)>
    $1          $2  $3         $4      $5   $6

"<a$1href=""$2$3.asp$4""$5$6>"

good luck

Thanks for the reply

It didn't seem to work and I eventually came up with:
<a href=sam.htm#test alt="here" id="dog">test</a>

<a(.*?)href\s*=\s*["']?(.*?)\.html?(.*?)["']?\s+(.*?)>

<a$1href="$2.asp$3" $4>

Cheers,

Sam
