FrontPage XP Publishes Unedited/Unchanged .doc files every time I Publish Web...

Hi,

I'm using MS Frontpage XP.  Every time I "Publish my Web" to the hosting server three .doc files I have in a sub web folder for such documents are published even though I have not changed or edited them in any way whatsoever.  I use thses documents, created with MS Word (MS Office 2000) as downloads available on the website as application and booking forms that an individual can complete.

It'sa bit of a nuisance and delay factor seeing them upload to the server every time!

Is there ant way this can be prevented from happening?

Regards

Arthur O'Hara.

You could right click on them & choose not to publish.  Have you looked at the server files via FP to see if the times are different?

Hi Corey,

Thank you!  I have checked the server files via FPxp and they have not changed from the original dates.

I have followed your advice and chosen "Don't Publish" - this works okay.

But, I would like to get to the bottom or the core for the reason they kept publishing even though they had not been amended.  I have .rtf versions up also and they are not affected.

Any more views on this would be appreciated.

Thanks again

Arthur O'Hara.

I have not had it happen before.  Do you recalculcate your hyperlinks every so often? And what about re-installing the FP extensions?

Seems somewhat unusual that this should happen.  I recalculate hyperlinks after all substancial amendments to the site, usually about once every two weeks.  FP Extensions were recently re-installed.  It was happening before and after the re-installation.

Is this something that Microsoft should be made aware of?  How would I do that?

Greetings and cheers from Ireland.

They might know - they tend to know a lot more than they let on :) - but it probably is not up high on their lists right now

Hi Corey,

Your first response really had the answer for me thank you.  I'm happy with that.  I'm going to bung off an article to Microsoft as I feel this is a very unusual occurrence.  As you have not encountered it before I would love to know what other Experts have to say!

Thanks again and the bst of luck
