Please take a look at these 2 pages and let me know what else I need to get the headet included in the other page? Does the server-side include work in an html file, or does it need to be php or asp.net?

http://travelnursecpa.com/header.html
http://travelnursecpa.com/index_wInclude.html

I don't really know if I have this question in the right zones, so please let me know what zones would be appropriate.

Thanks!

John

Server sides work in asp.net or php server side code.  Unless you can delcare the variable for html to read it, it will not work.

Excellent thanks. So  since I'm slightly more familiar ASP.NET than PHP (I know how to do registration and login),  am I correct that I have to put my html inside an asp.net form and save as  an aspx file?

Having done that, how and where do I declare the variable? Exactly what code would constitute the entire complete variable,  and where would it go? Would it go in the aspx.cs file or the aspx file or both?

Thanks,

John

Excellent, thanks! I couldn't get yours to work as is but I did get something very similar working. See the 3 codes below.

I've noticed that the files to be included don't have to be aspx, html will do just fine. Only the calling file has to be aspx, and in any event the files to be included can not have a page directive when they are aspx files.

Thanks a lot,

John
