Hi,

I have a folder of aspx files that I want to add to a solution.  How can I add/import the whole folder to another solution?

I've tried dragging the folder into Solution Explorer, but it doesn't work.  When I exit out of visual studio, the folder disappears the next time I open the solution.

Thanks!

Have you tried "Add Existing"? You can first create the folder in your solution using "Add New", then you can right-click that folder and perform "Add Existing". When the dialog opens, navigate to the existing folder, then select all relevant files; click "Add".

Kaufmed,

For some reason it's just not working out that easily for me.

In the solution explorer, I have the desired folder with what looks like a globe on it.  There is no + sign to let me expand that folder within Solution Explorer.

May be I am misunderstanding and don't have VS 2003 to test but..
What is that folder containing?
I know in VS2005 there is Add -> New Solution Folder which you might be looking for or
You will need to Add New WebSite to the solution and then you should be able to drag and drop the items I believe.
Or
May be a screenshot of your solution might help....

Got it.

Kaufmed's solution worked.  I just had to delete/remove all traces of my previous attempts before it would work.
