Hi,<BR><BR>I have a href link on my page. The href link needs to take me to a word doc or a excel file or any other file that had been uploaded earlier. But I do not want the user to goto the required file by clicking on the href tag. I need to do some database update saying the user has viewed this file and then take him to the file. For this, I take him to an intermediate page, do the database update in the server side script and then try to redirect the user to the file. This is not working. I keep getting the message that &#039The page cannot be displayed&#039. This is not happening if the file is a text file! Also, if the href tag is directly linked to the file, I am able to view or download the file. <BR><BR>Can someone show me some light?<BR><BR>regards,<BR>sanjeev<BR>
