I'm developing a web application written in C# and using .NET 1.1.

I want each user to download an excel file via a link button - such that when they click the linkbutton, a "save as" dialog appears so the user can save the file to his/her client machine.

I don't need anything fancy - the only other way I know to do this is very complicated (adding the file as a resource and extracting it before download).

Thank you in advance.
