Problems came up in the following areas during load - error message in Word2k

I got this message when I choose to edit HTML (ASP) in Word (using the IE command - edit with ...

Means - I browse the page with IE (it is an asp page from local IIS server), then I click the W to edit with WORD, then this message is showing on and off.

The HTML file contains LINK tags to css filess, IMG tags etc..
The error says it cannot get the files (the css file for instance).

I tried to figure out when it shows and when not :
On win 98 office2K (with sp3) it shows only after opening some files.
On win 2K with all SPs it never shows.

I think that it has to do with caching or proxy or some thing because when the message shows it points to missing file (the css file) that sure exist in the location.

One importan thing - after the message is shown, it will show again on and on untill reboot is done and then again I will be able to edit files 4 or 5 times untill the message come again.

I tried all searches in microsoft and other searches/
Thanks

Word is not an html or asp editor - it's a word processor. It's like trying to generate photographs with a calculator :-)
Use either a plain text editor such as notepad, or software specifically built for the task - Dreamweaver, FrontPage, Homesite, etc.

Dear George,

Please don't let me be missunderstood.
I dont want to edit the HTML I just want to be able to change some font. bolding. colors etc..

Please contact me if you want some information on why is this possibility so important to me.

Thanks

Dear Asaf,

With Word, you will only edit a 'downloaded' version of your page.  Word will not edit the page that is on the server.  In fact, Word is only able to edit HTML files, no ASP files.  If you want to use Word to edit your page, then open the original HTML file on the server (NOT through your webbrowser) and save it as HTML.

I hope this helps ;-)

Dear Peter

I do not want to edit the page that is on the server.  In fact, Word is only the tool I use for rendering , makeing some changes and sending the page as an attachment.

Please, if you can, concentrate on the error and the solving of it.

Thanks alot anyway.

Are you using the same version of Word on all the computers?  With the same servicepacks installed?  Because you didnt mention the Word version you use on Windows 2000...

Are you using the same version of Internet Explorer on all the machines?  Which version?  And what exactly is the complete error message?  You mention "Problems came up in the following areas during load" but it seems that the error message should indicate WHICH areas...

OK pbb72 :
It is IE 6 and the error message I wrote is the title of the message, within this message.

The error shows on a modal dialog titled as "HTML import errors", the dialog consist of OK and CANCEL command buttons, a message (which I wrote in the Question) and a list of the errors (I wish I could send a gif).
Any way, there is only one line in the error list, says "Missing file : http://x.x.x/y/z/w.css" (x,y,z are e.g only).

One more things : 2 images on the page are also not shown after I click the OK.

The starnge thing about it is that after reboot the page will well be imported for 4 or 5 times before the errors come.

Thanks again.

Hmmm you say the file is on a local webserver.  Are all the links to the stylesheets correctly formatted and not pointing to local files?  Can you view the source off the HTML in notepad and show us the lines that point to the CSS file?

asafmmAuthor Commented:
Yes it is a local server
The link tag shows as
<link rel=Stylesheet type="text/css" media=all href="http://10.0.2.207/Tardal/StyleSheets/Proposal.css">

pbb72Commented:
Is the website itself also located at http://10.0.2.207/Tardal?  If so, then you would better change the reference to a local reference:
<link rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" href="StyleSheets/Proposal.css" />

Basically it is that way (relative URL) but when I view source in WORD the URL is not relative, perhaps the import process tranlate the HTML into a different template.
