FP2000: Mixed Case File Names Using 8.3 Format Are Changed to Lowercase When Imported

For a Microsoft FrontPage 98 version of this article, see 248981.


When you import files with mixed case file names into a FrontPage Web, the case of the file names is changed to all lowercase. This may occur when you use the Import command on the File menu or use the import folder method.


File name case is lost during file import on FrontPage Webs. This only occurs for short file names that use the 8.3 format. The issue occurs for files that are being imported that are on a FAT or an NTFS partition.


To resolve this problem, obtain Microsoft Office 2000 Service Release 1/1a (SR-1/SR-1a).
