Thank you Geoff!!!
My IS director tried this and it worked!
Others responded that I should create a drectory named the file name and place an index.htm file in the directory - unfortunately that resulted in a 403 - Not allowed to view this page error (which is worse than the 404 error).
Thank you so much to all who replied - I really appreciate the quick
response that so many of you sent!

Assuming that the file itself is actually coded in HTML, all you need to do is rename the file; if you have direct shell access to your server and know UNIX, you can do this directly from the command line; if not, most good FTP software (I like ws_ftp, which you can download from a "rename" command that will let you navigate to the directory the file's in and change the name. Easiest of all, however, would be to rename the file in the authoring tool that you used, then upload it again to the site; how to do this depends on the software you're using and how your Web geeks have set up the process for uploading files, so you'll have to talk to them for details. The biggest advantage of using the authoring tool is that if the file is linked to any other pages in the site, the software will warn you of this problem and let you correct it and upload any other files that are affected.
