    Default download files .. issue

    I am giving an anchor for two typed of files in my web site (one csv and another xls). when I click the link for csv it brings a pop up asking whether to open file or save file to fisk but the xls file ... by default opens up in excel. It does not bring the pop up. <BR>Why is this? <BR>how do I make the pop up come up for all types of files?
