Updating template automatically in dreamweaver/ASP development

I inherited a site to update that was not designed optimally.

To begin with, it consisted of html files on one server, and asp files on another---nothing in templates so any change to menu structure is a nightmare.

I have decided to move all files to the asp server and that will hopefully result in being able to use only 1 template. However, in Dreamweaver, when i make changes to the Template, it does not automatically update all files associated with the Template. I can get the new template to work by reapplying the Template. Any advice on to how to modify this without having to resave each file.

Interesting. I can offer a suggestion.

Try changing something in every page with a "Search & Replace" query (Ctrl + F). Something like:
Search: entire site
search for code: "<html>"
replace with " <html>"    //added a useless space

replace all.
I am hoping this will resave all the files automatically hence saving you some work.

If you are going to try this, don't forget to back up your site before!

This link was very useful. Basically, I just have to update the site cache as it recommends. When designing with html, it had been doing that automatically.
