Hi,

I did a functionality which allows the user to download an excel sheet which contains the records in the database. When I press DOWNLOAD button in mozilla firefox it works correctly by downloading the excel file (filename.xls).
I'm using the following code:

response.setContentType("application/vnd.ms-excel");
response.setHeader("Content-disposition","attachment;filename=filename.xls");


But when i press DOWNLOAD button in Internet Explorer6.0 i am unable to download the excel file. It shows filename_html instead of filename.xls

help me please, Thanks in advance
