I need to edit the html pages on a used car lot website. I've been given the permissions to get to the files through Filezilla. When I view the html pages, there's an error "DDE execute request failed: a transaction failed" and I can't edit it?? I'm new to this so any help is much appreciated!!

Are you downloading the files to your computer before you try and open them?

That's what you need to do. Download the file, open it, edit it then upload it to overwrite the existing page.
