Hi all,
Imagine this -
I have an html page that displays a report and some buttons.
One of the button among others is save button.
I want to let the user save my report using this save button into another html file but that file should only have the report data and not the buttons.
How could i achieve this?
On using this -
document.execCommand('SaveAs',0,'xyz');
I get to save the whole html with the buttons.
My guess was that i have to use frames or iframes for this
but not sure how to do that.
please help me out.
Regards,
Shelly.

You are going to have to use some sort of frames.

to call the save function you are going to need to do something like this:

Hope that gets you started on the right track

Hi again,
This one is a common question i guess, but i still
cod not get the answer.
Is there an equivalent for
document.execCommand('SaveAs',0,'Report');
in netScape?
Thanks,
Shelly.
