I am trying to open an excel file by clicking a link where it goes to action class and then sets the content type to excel and I am opning it from there´┐Żbut the strange thing is that a file download opens with open/save/cancel but in the same window but it is showing a warning in the dailog box(windows warning which comes as an exclamatory mark) saying "This type of file could harm your computer if it conatins malicious code" and on cliking open it shows a dialog saying "Could not open http://localhost:8080/context/myaction.do?fileName=3.xls" .Dont know why its trying to opne my action url rather than it should look for 3.xls in my folder

Any clue on this would be helpful

Please do not cross-post the same question in multiple forums. It wastes people's time when multiple redundant conversations take place. Please continue any discussion of this topic here.
