Welcome to the JavaRanch, fang. You must have missed our naming policy on the way in. To keep things friendly around here, we ask that everyone use their real name, that is: a first name and last name seperated by a space and not obviously fake. You can change your name here.
Your post is a little light on the details of your situation, but my wild guess is that you have a servlet. Remember that HTTP is a request-response protocol. Your browser is waiting for that response. Are you writing anything back to the browser, or just emailing the excel file?

My request are all done through servlet. In my servlet is doing the generation of excel file and attach the file to the email.
After all the codes, I did not set any redirect. (So i guess if everything goes right, i should get a blank page.)

I try with small amount of records and is prefectly okie. But my database has around 30 over thousand records. Was wondering, is it because of the large records? How can i handle such problem?

Any way to stop the page loading, ie, in IE the loading bar at the bottom just stay there, in morzilla, the loading sign will not stop.

Thanks

"fanf fang", Joe's request that you change your display name to adhere to JavaRanch standards was not a suggestion. Valid display names are mandatory for participation on the Ranch. Please change your display name as instructed prior to your next post.

Be aware that accounts with invalid display names are removed.

P.S. This is not an advanced Java question so I've moved it to the Servlets forum.

Like I said, you have to write a response to the browser. It's also polite to give the user a "file sent to your email" message rather than make him sit there wondering if his request went through.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
