I have written a servlet for downloading .doc or .xls files to the client when the client clicks on a link. But, on the client side, the Open/Save dialog box appears twice. I would basically like to know whether the response.addHeader() statement or the response.setContentType() statements result in the Open/Save dialog box appearing. BTW, the link for downloading the Word/Excel files are inside Flash (.swf) files.

Have you tried taking the link out of the swf files to rule out that it could be a flash issue, instead of a problem with your servlet code?

Well, I have solved the problem by commenting the response.setHeader line. But now, the problem is that it is displaying a Page Not Found error on certain client machines, while it downloads properly on other client machines. Wonder if this has got anything to do with IE settings?
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
