Choosing 'open' in file download adds [1] to filename?

Hi,

I have a program where the user can download the file in csv
format. I am using jsp and when the file dialog appears, if we choose open, the file name is having [1] appended to it.

And the excel worksheet has a invalid name.

Ex. File name - laksh.csv

It appears as <b>laksh[1].csv </b>
and worksheet name appears as <b>.csv]laksh[ </b>

I dont want this to happen.

I am giving the file unique name by appending the file name with current time & also tried the same by deleting all the cache.

Can anyone help me to come out of this problem?
Thanks
Regards
