How to generate html files from dynamic files ASP

Hi Experts,

How are you. I have a portal which is fully dynamic in nature. ASP and sql server. To show data of any property I am like using http://www.xyz.com/a.asp?id=15.

So based on this id my site shows the data. Now I want that there should be a method or technology in ASP which allows me to publish these pages offline means on a CD.

What i want is that there should be a mechanisim which generates pages (HTML pages) like 15.htm, 14.htm from these pages so that i can give these pages to my client on Cd to view offline.

I know there must be some method. I donot want that I visit each page individually and then use the save as method. I want that this automatically generates the same.

Regards,

I do not know if you can get this via a batch file command.  But, it may require a simple C code to invoke WinInet functions and get the page as rendered by the asp engine.  If you would like the code, please let me know.  The trouble there, however, is that you must retrieve the images, script files, and style files save them somewhere and then adjust the paths in the rendered page.

I think you need to generate all the pages dynamically .
For example you can generate all the pages you want from a database and then you can wite to the CD and give them.

You should look into some web spidering programs, specifically ones like wget for linux which are specifically meant to mirror sites.

I think wget has an option -k that allows you to convert dynamic links into local ones so you can host them locally.
