I am trying to figure out how to get the code from a website someone else created and bring it into adobe dreamweavers cs3. Is that even possible. My employers previous web guy left a site he created and I would like to update and maintain it, not rebuild it. Thoughts?

There are a lot of questions that need answering. In theory its simple: 1. Download site 2. Edit site 3. Upload changes
But you need access to the server on which the site is located. If the creator signed the company up with an external host and walked off with the account details and/or passwords then you have a problem.
If the hosting isn't done in-house then you will definitely need some FTP software to up/down load.
Other issues may arise depending on what the creator did or failed to do.

Sorry for some of the confusion, after re reading my question it did sound kind of strange. I am new to web design and have only used some basic progams that generate the code for me. I was un aware that you could download the site with access to the server, which I can get access to. I know the hosting isnt done in in-house so I guess a recomendation on some FTP software to upload is what I need?
I can't find anything in CS3 that will let me import code from a url.

CS3 will let you set up a website so that it downloads the whole thing via ftp. It will let you make changes right from the program so you don't really need an ftp client. I personally don't use this feature but you can do it.
