When you change the layer ID of any layer by using the task pane of the layer, any scripts or Behaviors that call that layer are not updated with the new layer ID. As a result, the scripts or Behaviors may not function correctly in the following programs:
  • Microsoft Expression Web
  • Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer 2007
  • Microsoft Office FrontPage 2003
This problem occurs because changes to layers in Expression Web, SharePoint Designer 2007, or FrontPage 2003 are coded as manual changes. Therefore, these programs do not parse the Web page code for any scripts that are attached to the Web page.
To work around this problem, follow these steps:
  1. On the Edit menu, click Replace.
  2. In the Find what: area, type the previous layer ID.
  3. In the Replace with area, type the new layer ID.
  4. Click Close.
  5. Save the Web page.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
