I am trying to redirect the contents of my page to a spreadsheet and I use
res.setContentType("application/vnd.ms-excel");
to set the content type.
This works when I use Excel 97 but with newer releases of Excel (eg: 2000) it doesn't.
Help!!!
Thanks.

Hi,
   Some suggestion to find out that MIME Type...
  Open explorer and goto View -> Folder Options. In that goto file types tab, in that search for Microsoft Excel Worksheet. It will give you what is the Content Type(MIME type). Apply this in your ContentType. It may help you.

Thanks. Now I know what the MIME types are for Excel 97 and Excel 2000. But how can write my servlet to work with both versions? Thanks.

You can get the available mimie types by using javascript navaigator.mimeTypes

But one thing is navigator works only in Netscape ;-(((. I don't know how to check in IE...
