Changing template and transferring change to all other child pages?

I created several pages based on a Frontpage template (.tem) I also created in Frontpage.  If I change something in the template, will I be able to "transfer" that change to all the webpages that I created that used that template? How?
I just changed a link in the template and I need all the pages that I created reflect that change.

Thanks.

Hi,

when you look at the generated HTML code, you can see there are no traces of template included. Those templates serve only for creating new pages :-((

What you need are dynamic web templates, which stay attached to all "their" files. so, if a dynamic web template is changed, all "its" pages are changed, too.

It works in FP 2003, not in earlier versions. See e.g.: http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/frontpage/HA010775891033.aspx?pid=CL100570711033

What you need to do is turn that template into a theme
Brundo is right - all you do with a template is use it to create new pages - and all others apges won't change if you change the template
But themes are used to do exactly what you are looking for - change site elements based on a central design
