I saw the article at:<BR><BR>http://www.4guysfromrolla.com/webtech/081199-1.2.shtml<BR><BR>and thought it was just what i was looking for...unfortunatley this technique, and similar (like using adodb.stream object instead of sa file manager) doesn&#039;t seem to work on iis5 when mime type is set to "application/msword". <BR><BR>On iis4 everything is fine, but on iis5 the content type is picked up, but then instead of the word file you want to see, your source code is revealed for all to see!!<BR><BR>Im running on 2000 proffesional with service pack 2. <BR><BR>check it out, if anyone knows of any work around that would be great.
