Allistar,

let me clarify..i generate a excel file by some servlet when the user 
clicks a button on the page.
and that i place in the root directory..when the refreshes(after the user 
hits the button),i want to open
a window of the browser expecting that IE will open that in a excel 
embedded in the browser..
but IE is openeing that as a text..

so where should i keep the content type code....iam using a 
window.open(",,.,,/../test.xls")

i dont want to open a jsp in excel

I've just done this today! :) The following JSP boots up in Excel..you 
need to set the content type before ANYTHING else happens with the output 
stream

<%
 response.setContentType("application/vnd.ms-excel");
 response.addHeader("Content-Disposition", 
"attachment;filename=myExcelTest.xls");
%>

hi there, 

iam using tomcat 5 version..i  have a requirement 
where my jsp will generate a excel sheet and places in the server 
directory.. 
but the problem is when i open the excel thru a java script from a browser 
window,i actually get the 
excel in text format on the browser itself.. 

i tested the same excel sheet using a static html page,it opens in excel 
format within the 
browser. 

are theere any specific mime type settings to be set..i already tried with 
application/vnd.ms-excel 

any help is appreciated 

TIA
