FrontPage - adding in a file from another source?

Posted by loriellen (My Page) on

I am developing a simple web site using FrontPage. I am using shared borders. For the bottom border, I need to show content from an existing URL (not in my current web). My client will be editing this file periodically; it shows up on everey single page in his website. I am only working on a small portion of the site. It is important that the bottom border of "my" part of the site is that same file that shows up everywhere else, so that when he edits it, my part is updated as well.

I believe that the Insert > File will show the content, but will not update when he edits the source file.

Basically, I just need the bottom border of my shared borders to show the content from an existing URL. For some reason, I can't figure this out. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
