setting file name for creating a data file via servlet

I have created a Servlet/JSP solution that allows the user to save data from MySQL as tab-delimited file.
What I do not know is how to programmatically set the default name for the file when the user does a 'Save As'. I recall seeing a solution to this awhile back but cannot find the reference.
Thanks!
Steve

Please disregard! I just found my answer in a previous post (guess I didn't search thoroughly enough the first time).
The answer is:
response.setHeader("Content-Disposition","attachment;filename="ALLRESULT.CSV");
Thanks,
Steve
