Greetings experts,

i'm trying to give my users the opportunity to download a report (the returned recordset) in csv format.

I'm using the following header code, which works great in firefox (auto download to desktop) however in ie6 it just hangs.  I need it to throw up a alert asking the user where they would like to save the file.  Is this possible using the method i've chose?

FileName = "sampleReportName.txt"
Response.ContentType = "text/csv"
Response.AddHeader "Content-Disposition", "filename=" & FileName & ";"
