Trying to create a CVS file with ASP works beautifully except when it is on a secure site “https://” and trying to download with IE. All other browsers work well, using “http://” works well. But most people use IE and there is sensitive data so it needs the secure connection.

I get this error
Internet Explorer cannot download ExportReport.asp from Doman.Name.com.
Internet Explorer was not able to open this internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please thy again later.

The offending code is
Response.ContentType="application/CSV"

I have tried
Response.ContentType="application/vnd.ms-excel"
With the same result

Also tried but
Response.ContentType="application/octet-stream"
It just opens the results as a page and not in a spreadsheet
