in my asp.net home page for a news site, I want the contents of another HTML page to be scrolled verically and automatically in a table cell of this home page . How can I do it?
The source of the contents can be another HTML page or a cell whcih picks up it's contents directly from an SQL DB.

I am using Frontpage 2003 and ASP.NET Web Matrix Project..

Have you considered using a scrollable div?

Is it the same as a Marquee? Sorry I am not an HTML expert.
Will it allow me to display another HTML page in a cell and make it scroll automatically UP/Down - like scrolling head line news.

Could you provide some link please?

I have checked on MS site, they have a Web Control for Scrolling an HTML page within another, but it is only applicable to FP 97?

Thanks

Hm now after re-reading the problem, let me ask, are you wanting to use an include or an iframe?  You can use an include & place it in a scrollable div.  The DIV will look like an Iframe actually (but better since it is not a frame).  

Take a quick look at http://www.rockctech.com/ - the content is in a scrollable div.  is that what you are wanting to achieve?

Hello
Thanks for your response. What I am looking for auto scrolling feature and not Manual. I am working on a news site, and I want the top news to scroll automatically in one of the cells in a table in my home page. This should happen vertically and not horizontally.
Now this I can do using a Marquee, but I want the contents of this auto scrolling feature to come from another HTML page.
I hope that this will clear up the requirement.

Well this is really not a Frontpage question.  Have you checked out some scripts like:
http://simplythebest.net/scripts/DHTML_scripts/dhtml_script_119.html
http://www.codejunction.com/detailed/multipile-message-vertical-scroller.html

Your are more than likely going to have to use DHTML / Javascript or possibly even Java.
