Hi
I have tp save the JSP output to a file. I have set the header to response.setContentType(application/ms-excel). I get a dialog box for the output. Save/Open when I hit Open it opens up the output in Excel. But when I click Save it asks me for a file name and the name it displays in a .jsp file and the user manually have to change the name to .xls file while saving.
IS there a way where If I click save instead of the .jsp as the filename it is displayed as a .xls file in the file dialogue box.
Thanks
