I've had a number of excel files saved as 'web pages' (.htm) for years with difficulties.  In the last week I have not been able to view those recently updated htm files on my website, instead I get "Sorry, the page you're looking for can't be found" homestead page.  The file is there, it saves and publishes fine but no longer visible online.  Why is this file type no longer working?  Sitebuilder no longer works on my XP system so I've been forced to use Sitebuilder Plus, which has been painful and unreliable at times but has been adequate.  Until now?

Which site are you working on? Sitebuilder Plus sites should display a .htm file just fine. Let me know what page name as well.

Hi Drew.  I am working with Sitebuilder Plus (since my XP no longer supports the desktop version, as you found out for me).  The old .htm files I uploaded years ago display just fine, it is the new one that I tried to upload and would not.  It was off this page, even going back and putting the original htm file back on the link (that used to work just fine) would not work any longer.  http://monza.homestead.com/Production.html (The SPECIAL EDITION figures)

I ended up having to ignore the htm file (both original and updated) and make up a new page for the Special Edition figures, which, obviously, works fine but far too much work to do for any other of those htm files that I may have to update in the future.  main site is here... http://monza.homestead.com/monza.html

Unfortunately, a new computer is probably not the issue. When you save it as a pdf, you will not be able to edit it. You would have to also keep the xls file and update it and then save it as a new pdf.

That is good to know (showing my amateur computer skills), thanks for that!!!  Obviously since the htm documents are no longer working, this PDF (now that you've taught me how to use it properly) maybe an option to putting it all manually on a webpage.

I guess my whole curiosity now is why are the htm files saving as a number files and not just 1 single htm file that I can easy move and add to the file manager, like I could in the past.

I will try to look at this when I have a chance, but it may be a question better asked at Microsoft. They may have changed something. I just don't know.

No, I completely understand, it certainly isn't a Homestead issue any longer.  Thanks so much for your assistance though, again!!!
