Hi,
I am able to find excel report succesfully in the desired place, but it opens with a bunch of junk characters, I have already tried the "folder option->File type->setting open to default->deselecting confirm open after download. and browse in the same window." change. But the problem still persists.
Can any one suggest how to deal with the problem?

How is this question related to HTML and JavaScript?

Hi Bauke Scholtz,

I don't know how it is related to HTML, but I found one document suggesting to change the folder option's open atribute and set it to default, I even failed to download simple HTML linked Excel format file which when uploaded goes to the destination properly. I have got success in downloading document files, pdf files and executable files(provided client side has installed with Word Docs, Acrobat Reader).

I found the mime type was not set(in the web.xml) that sense the error.
Thank's to the forum.
