ASP and RTF creation

Hello,

Now, for the record, my RTF creation script works fine, but what I used to do at the end of the script is usually just a simple "Response.Redirect" to some other page which would contain a link to the document which was just created (thus allowing the user to right-click and choose save target as..).

I was wondering is it possible to open the document in a new window straight after the script has been run (so the user can view it and choose to save it if they want).

Any help would be appreciated

LOL...Sorry for the confusion..Let me explain as I might have given the wrong example.

You have already saved a file called file.txt in a directory called Doc (for example)

So you need to do a

Filestr = Server.Mappath & "./Doc/" & Filename

Response.Write("<script>window.open("& Filestr &","FrameName")</script>")

This will open up the document in a new window.

I am so sorry for the confusion cuz the code given was from my own code library!!! So sorry.

leechoonhwee,

First, that code is missing some quotations, I'd imagine it would read:

Response.Write("<script>window.open(""PageName.asp?File=" & FilePath & ",""FrameName"")</script>")

Where, FilePath = the fullpath and name of the file that was just created in the script.  I assume that this was the only variable I had to change?  The end result that I recieved was a blank page (no window opened).

Could you give a little more detail about what I'm supposed to change.  Am I required to make a new page called PageName (or whatever I want to call it)?  If so, I have no idea what to put on this page.

Thanks in advance
