Default HTML to ASPX

I'm so very new to the concept of ASPX...it's just recently that I have even heard of it. I redesigning a website that was completely built in ASPX....which I didn't even realize until just a few days ago (ASPX). The new pages are designed in HTML...GoLive CS MAC OSX. There are two forms on the old site that I need for the new site, otherwise I wouldn't care...but the two forms have databases, and I wanted the transition to be seamless...best made plans...and all. So, I have been told that I can convert static HTML to ASPX by changing the extensions. Is that right? And is there a way to use the aspx forms within the html...or convert my pages to ASPX and then add their forms. Or am I just going to have to hire an ASPX programmer at this point. I'd appreciate any direction or advise from anyone that knows more than I do about ASPX...which should be just about everyone on here. Thanks in Advance.
Tammy Fink:)

I'm not sure what you mean the two pages have databases. If you mean they access the db in the page then simply changing the extention will not work. However, you can include standard html pages in a .NET project. You don't necessarly need to convert them. Just include them in your project.

What I guess I should have said is that there are two forms in asp on the pages that I need to change. Let me explain a bit more...there is a newsletter signup form...and a appointment generator form on two of the pages. In HTML, If this was a new project, I would use a CGI script or something to make the new forms...but since these forms are in ASP...I'm not sure what to do with them...so that they will continue to work as is...a seamless transition. I don't want to use the pages that they currently are on...I just need to somehow get the old forms into the new pages...without destroying the database. Does that make sense? Feel free to email me directly. Thanks
Tammy

Well, if you don't want to use the pages as is, then you will have to rewrite them. You can use any of the .NET languages, VB, C# or J#. As for "destroying the database", I am not sure what you mean by that. You would simply write SQL to retrive or Update/Insert data. What database are you currently using?
