    Okay to wrent this thread back on topic

    We had the similar problem with the default HTML, it also shows various things that were unnecessary.

    So one of our techs has created a word doc, and created a macro within this, which opens the HTML file, removes any lines that are unnecessary, remove the column that states the reason they're off (which was the main issue).

    It then saves it to a network location as default.html (overwriting the previous), and then we can send the staff to an internal "site" http:/cover/, which loads the page. We make the lady that does the cover do this when she finishes.

    Awesome, exactly why I'm looking for. Can you post it?

    I would love to be able to change the background to a dark gray as well so it has better definition of the screen.

    Hey... it's funny the things you discover when you go looking around for stuff...

    I have attached the file..

    We have mapped a drive z: to the \\server\cover share
    The SIMS is exported to z:\new because it can't export it to z:\

    The attached file was created in Office 2003, I'm not sure if the machine she uses is Office 2010 now though. If the exported HTM file is in the correct location IE z:\new\cv101010.htm the macro will find it, and do some funky stuff and save it back as z:\new\today.htm. The macro works out the proper name of the file using the date.

    We then host this folder on the server via apache (amongst a few other internal sites), the relevant lines in the apache conf file are

    Code:
    <IfModule dir_module>
        DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.php default.html default.htm default.php today.htm
    </IfModule>
    
    
    <VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot "W:\www\80\ict\resource\cover\new"
    ServerName cover
    </VirtualHost>
    The folder w:\www\80\ict\resource\cover is shared out via SMB as "Cover"
    We also redirect the name COVER in DNS to the server IP.

    I don't know how to do all that in IIS.

    That's the sort of thing I was thinking of, except if the processing could be done in vbscript then the user would have to do nothing more than export to HTML as usual.

    Hope it does the trick for you zag
