Excel Download Directory location

Hi,

I have a JSP that throws a report in the form of an excel download.
So, whenever this JSP executes it...it throws a pop-up giving the user to select either "SAVE INTO DISK" or "OPEN FROM CURRENT LOCATION".
I find that whenever user selects the OPEN FROM CURRENT LOCATION....it throws it into the C:\WINNT\TEMPORARY INTERNET FILES folder in the machine.
My question is : Is there a way we can change this setting to download to some other folder in the machine..like say C:\outputs.
Can this change be done in the JSP or is there any other alternative ?

Thanks.


Cheers<br />Siva<br />SCJP 1.4<br />SCWCD 1.3

Guess not. This is more of an OS thing. Try changing your TEMP environment variable on the OS, may be that could help.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
