I have an HTA file that I would like to edit. Is there any way to do it? I need to take a look at the code that was used to create that HTA file.

You should be able to open it with any standard text editor (Notepad for example) to view the code.

All I have is this HTA file: http://www.sibsalsa.ru/test.hta

It is a multiple-choice test, but it was created wrong. I am trying to fix the errors.

ScHwErV you don't seam to have tried to work out what the file does. It is a Hypertext Application, you can only open it in IE. And for this I recommend you don't use it alosito.

Your better of useing plain HTML and some server side stuff like PHP or ASP

I am aware of what it is and how to open it. Ive only been doing this computer thing for 15 years or so.

I stand by my statement. Doing this type of thing as an HTA versus HTML/PHP or ASP is not what I would consider valid. I would never visit it.
