I have a Web site with hundreds of pages built with FP 2003. I have just installed VWD 2010 and I would like to migrate the FP 2003 Web site into VWD 2010. The FP 2003 doesn't have a Project File that VWD expects, so I am stumped. Any suggestions?

Try using the Open Web Site option.
I assume that the site uses classic ASP, and/or FrontPage extensions? There are no automated tools that will convert the site to an ASP.NET 4.0 application. You will have to rewrite it.

That worked. I can now see the entire Web site. Thanks.
What I see is that almost every item, statement, or instruction has a warning or error message.
If there is no automated tool available, is it possible to make global changes to the errors and then copy and paste the pages into new VWD 2010 Web site?
Thanks again for your help.

Most of the warnings can be ignored, and there are user preferences you can set to do this. The Find function in VS allows you to specify the current file, folder, project etc. I can't remember whether VWD does this as well. Ctrl + F should bring it up for
If the site is classic ASP, there is no automated tool to convert that to ASP.NET. There was one for ASP.NET 1.1 but it was rubbish. It hasn't been updated.
