    Default Launch Word document from

    There is an article at,289483,sid8_gci956272,00.html regarding using to launch a report as a PDF. I need to launch a report as a Microsoft Word document, so I have these questions: <BR>1. Can I used the method article and change the Response.ContentType from “Application/pdf” to “word”? Would this work or are there other changes I need to make? <BR>2. Are there any website articles telling how to do this with Microsoft Word? <BR>3. Is there any commercial software available that does this?

    Default RE: set the ContentType to

    Actually, I find this to be the closest thing so far:<BR><BR>&#060;script runat="server"&#062;<BR>Sub Page_Load(source As Object, e As EventArgs)<BR> Response.ContentType = "application/msword"<BR> Response.Write ("Blah")<BR>End Sub<BR>&#060;/script&#062;<BR><BR>But here are my new problems:<BR>1. I can&#039;t figure out how to open a label template<BR>2. It opens in the Internet Explorer, not MS Word. I need it to open in Word.<BR><BR>Any suggestions?
