I am quite new to asp so please bear with me. I am accessing a database with asp and a sql statement to retrieve some data for a report. The page works fine. I then decided to place the data in an excel spreadsheet rather than a html table. I added the following piece of code:<BR><BR>&#060;%Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.ms-excel"%&#062;<BR><BR>This works, however the first time the page is accessed The spreadsheet will be populated and everything is ok. The next time i access the page the spreadsheet is not populated! This continues to happen in this order every time the page is loaded. There, not there, there, not there, the (i think you get the picture) Please all you asp gurus give me a quick fix so i can stop these endless nights of frustration!<BR><BR>PS it all works fine if i replace the asp with a simple table!
