    to start with our hosted remote site, copy a back up to my local file server,
    then modify content there, and then repost to the internet. I just cannot seem
    to find the way to "Open" a file starting from the web server copy.
    HELP?!?!?!? Thanks, JGM

    That is exactly the right way to operate.
     

    Read DW's F1 Help about how to define a site (Local and Remote). Define it.
    Connect to the Remote site. Select all files, and GET them. You're done.

    Possible ways:
    1) FTP into the server and download the files. That is the simplest, cheapest
    and most reliable way.
    2) Search in google for program that will grab the whole site. No guarantee
    that it will work and a good program is hard to find
    3) Goto http://webassist.com and buy siteimport. It does not work in every
    situation but it has worked well for me in a wide variety of situations. So no
    guarantee it will work for you in yours. Perhaps they have a demo, I don't
    recall.
    4) My best expereinces of importing sites from the server using a tool other
    than ftp have been frontpage. But currently I misplaced my cd so am using
    siteimport from webassist.

    Hope that helps.
