Close enough I think. I have Visual Studio 6 with Visual Interdev on my pc. I am dynamically generating a link on a web page that looks like so: http://localhost/Etc/myPage.asp?DOC=docFoldermy TextFile.txt. The link should the text file specified. It has no problems with .htm or .pdf files, but with the text file i'm prompted to open from current location or save to disk. Opening from current location opens the file in Visual Interdev and saving to disk trys to save myPage.asp. I've tried in Windows Explorer to change the file type option fro text documents but this makes no difference. Is it browser related? any ideas greatfully recieved.
