ASP is written in VBscript and ASPX is written in VB or C# code. There are
different technologies, so I don't think any kind of automated conversion
exists. There would be too many variables to account for.

Talking abt just content migration. Page to page.

SharePoint doesn't support pages  using server side ASP, so there is no way to
migrate ASP pages into SharePoint other than re-writing them in ASP.NET.

Ok say we have an asp  page that has only information and nothing fancy. By that
i mean when u open the asp page in frontpage n change view to View Code, u get
to see the HTMl tags and wat not but within the <body> </body> is what i want to
migrate. Lets say the stuff between the opening body tag and closing body doesnt
have html tags in it.

I don't know of anything that does this, but it wouldn't be hard to write. You
just need to open the ASP page as text and copy all the text inside the BODY tag
and place it inside the PlaceHolderMain Content tag on a standard SharePoint

What's inside the body if not HTML tags? Is it just one long string of text

You have a few options for getting the content into SharePoint. None are
very good.

a. Create a library of web part pages, each with a Page Viewer Web
Part. The URL property of the web part should be pointed to an existing ASP
page. This is fairly easy but extremely monotonous to set up, especially if
you have a lot of pages. This also requires that you keep the original ASP
web server online. This would display the entire page (banner, menu,
content, footer, etc) in the SharePoint page, which could be quite awkward
or unattractive.

b. Use a Content Editor Web Part instead. You'll have to cut and paste
the relevant content and associated HTML code from the old page to the new
page. Depending on how you coded the original pages, this could be very
difficult. This would allow you to shut off the old server, though. This
approach would allow you to select only the content, so would probably be
more attractive and less troublesome.

c. Hire someone to do it for you. You can probably get someone to do
the work over the web. I am not sure what sort of rate you would have to
pay, perhaps $15-$20 per hour, or you might be able to negotiate a per page
rate. Perhaps someone else can jump in here with a better estimnate for this
type of work.

If you can post a URL to the ASP site, folks can take a look and perhaps
offer some specific recommendations.

If you truly mean "just content" without any dynamic code behavior, then
you could easily write or procure something (e.g.
www.newprosoft.com/web-content-extractor.htm , which I have never
used) that would hit your asp  web server, walk your structure, scrape each
page, save the content as pagename.aspx, and even add a master page tag. Of
course if you have footers or anything else like that, you'll want to parse
the pages  with something more local in order to strip that stuff out; at
that point you can just save them locally without the need to screen-scrape.

As Steve mentioned, a bit more detail would go a long way toward helping
us recommend something worthwhile.

Does that help at all?
