    Default dowloading a doc or txt file

    Hi,...<BR><BR>I have a problem here,.. actually I think this is not an ASP topic but anyway I have to download a doc or txt file instead of displaying it on the internet browser. As I know, we could download a file by placing a hyperlink to the address of that file, the question is how can we download the file instead of displaying it,... ( i mean : for the doc or txt files)<BR><BR>Thanks<BR>best regards

    IE got too clever, it defaults to displaying a file if it can find the associated program on the user&#039s machine.<BR><BR>I got round this using SA file up from SoftArtisans,<BR><BR>but would be interested to hear other suggestions

    IE ignores the MIME type specified in the header, and opens an application based on the file extension at the end of the url. If you want to force a save, you may add a bogus extension to the end of the url that Windows doesn&#039t recognize: "myfile.txt?". But this is also rather unsatisfactory. I don&#039t have a suggestion for NN.
