i am using struts to download a file.
in the link for downloading file in order to open in a new browser i have user target="_blank" in ahref tag
<a href="path" target="_blank">
the following code opens a pop asking for open save and cancel dialog
response.setHeader("Content-disposition", "attachment; filename="
+ oSWFDownloadVO.getStrFileName())
when i click on save , it opens a blank browser window. is there any way to close the blank browser window when save is clicked.

Just remove target="_blank". Since you've specified that it is an attachment, even if the user selects "open", it will be opened in a new window anyway.
