i am using the following code

response.addHeader("content-disposition", "inline; filename=" + resultXLS);
it does not taken the entire string as file name
it takes only Summary as file name.

Try putting quotes around the filename in the header. Something like:

Don't put a space in the file name, so use SummaryBalanceSheet.xls

One thing I am confused on - if you want the user to save the file, why set the content-disposition to "inline" (display in the browser)? Wouldn't "attachment" be the correct value if the intent is for the user to save the file?
