Renaming the file while saving

Hi,

I wrote the following code to open an xls file in a jsp file called (Test.jsp)

response.setContentType("application/vnd.ms-excel");
response.setHeader("Pragma","no-cache");
ServletOutputStream stream = response.getOutputStream();
InputStream streamIn = new FileInputStream("d:\hi.xls");
int data = 0;
while((data = streamIn.read()) != -1)
{
stream.write(data);
}
streamIn.close();
stream.flush();
stream.close();

The code is working fine but while saving the xls file instead of saving like hi.xls it is saving as Test.xls where Test is the jsp name

How can we directly save as hi.xls instead of Test.xls?

Pls help me in this regard

Thanxs in advance

Hi Naga,
The below line should allow you to give what ever name to the download file.
res.addHeader("Content-Disposition", "inline; filename=xyz.xls");

Hope this helps
