I was able to open it. But the problem is that is CSV file and when it is opened in Excel there are cells but
data is not split. I have rows only.

Please help.

Try using a content type of "application/vnd.ms-excel", or better, "text/csv".

If it is not showing up as expected in Excel, then open the .csv file with a text editor and see if there is a problem with the CSV data. Maybe there are no line breaks? or the line breaks are not recognized? That is my guess.

I do have line breaks but Excel does not format cells using commas.

You can use the file name along with the extension in your jsp program, say for example,

"examplefile.xls" or "examplefile.csv" so that it can be saved with the appropriate format, even though the file type is described as '.jsp'.

BTW, i have a similar application for EXCEL downloading and displaying in browser.
