Yes, the IIS4 web server does define "SCRIPTS" as a virtual directory
pointing to the "<drive>:\inetpub\scripts" directory. I decided to use the
name of "broker" for a virtual directory so that I could import my pages to
any web server machine; the SAS/Intrnet broker might reside on a separate
machine. Thus, my SAS image code looks like this:
>Yea, I don't know about FrontPage. We do it all by hand (for good or bad.) However, it's possible that FrontPage is not really going through the web server. If you load the first page up from the hard drive rather than through the web server, then subsequent calls won't be referencing correctly.
Actually, Frontpage is a nice product for generating fast web pages, and the
cost of the product is minimal as it is included in the Office package.
Also, I can have ordinary workers edit content without having to scale a
steep learning curve. I use Textpad to write my SAS code.
>If it's not that, then there's not enough info in your message. At least for me. Others who are wiser may be able to help.
I appreciate all the help I can get as I am a civil engineer, not a
full-time programmer. This particular web application provides a "real-time"
view of 76 irrigation sites that are managed through a SCADA system.
Unfortunately, access has been severely curtailed since the 9/11 attacks. An
encrypted VPN is probably on the horizon.
>How your static HTML code will look depends on what you code on the SAS side. If you need to access files that are not directly below your web home directory, then you can create other virtual directories.
>None of this may be right but it's hard to know without more info.
>BTW, I think "Mad Doggy" missed it, but you are using image tags and not in-line images.
Everyone who responded has been very helpful. I really appreciate the timely
responses typical of this group.
