Preventing File Download Dialog box with IE automation

I'm using an AxSHDocVw.AxWebBrowser to automate signing in, navigating to the correct page, and downloading some information to an Excel file.  I've made it to the correct page.  Now, how do I prevent the File Download dialog box from poping up and how can I enter the information it asks for programatically?

Thanks,

Melody

Thank you for the links.

From the 2nd link, it seems that what I want can't be done.  Is this correct?

Im not sure of the webbrowser class you are using, I would suggest using the WebClient class (System.Net.WebClient) for the actual download, as it will not pop up any dialog boxes.
