We have a web .net program with built in reporting that presents data to users in an html format and then they can export the report to Excel. When a report is very large we'd like to skip the html step and just allow them to save the report to their desktop. Maybe there is a program out there where they can do this. Would be nice if there was a .net component we could add to our program.

What i understand is you want to ftp a excel sheet to client's computer.
I guess the below link will help you to write a program that can ftp a file to some other machine

Using ftp will require some permissions on the client's computer
