so if i understood your question, u want a script that finds the .html, and replaces it by .mht

it's kind of find and replace

take a look at this page, you may find the answer :
http://www.codeproject.com/useritems/findandriplace_rtb.asp

and here's the function you may need :



Public Class RichTextBoxFR
    Inherits RichTextBox
   
    Public Sub FindAndReplace(ByVal FindText As String, ByVal ReplaceText As String)
    Me.Find(FindText)
            If Not Me.SelectionLength = 0 Then
            Me.SelectedText = ReplaceText
            Else
            MsgBox("The following specified text was not found: " & FindText)
            End If
    End Sub
   
End Class

thanx for reply sir,
  But it is not exactly i wanted. This code will just replace the specified string to other.
Let u have one example.
  Consider i m opening www.yahoo.com page in browser, So by using my application it should save this page with .mht extension.
 I hope u have got it now
thanx

hi hclgroup,
 One problem has arose in that code.  This code saves the home page to the harddisk, means if i will save the file, then it saved in the format of .mht, but when i opened it, it direclty opens the live page of that file, means it do not open it from myh harddisk.  For example, i m saving the the google page file in the google.mht  format in my c drive (c:\google.mht), but when i open it, the address in the address bar is www.google.com instead of c:\google.mht.  I don't want in this format. Is there any other way out.

Plz help.
plz send me the solution at subunotes@yahoo.co.in as soon as possible. It's urgent
