changing content types
Posted on 1998-12-10
Instead of, or in addition to displaying a table of information about a database record returned on a web browser, I would like that table to be saved as a text file. How can I go about doing this? The book I have says you can change the content-type by saying:
Response.Expires = 0
Response.Buffer = TRUE
Response.ContentType = "text/plain"
But that doesn't work. The idea is for the user to be prompted where to save a file which contains a record's data formatted as a table and based on the his/her query. I was hoping the prompt would appear by specifying a MIME type that the browser doesn't recognize. This is the only way I can think of to have the user prompted for a location to save a file. And the file is dynamic (generated on the fly) compared to a static type that resides on the server. Please help ASAP.
