Hi

I have a link the shows a pdf file. It works fine in ie7 and ff but not in ie6. I can only get it to work in ie6 if i save the file first then open.

Any help would be appreciated (Code below)
Response.ClearContent();
            Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", string.Format("attachment; filename={0}", file.Name));
            Response.AddHeader("Content-Length", file.Length.ToString());
            Response.ContentType = "application/pdf";
            Response.TransmitFile(file.FullName);
            Response.End();

Hi acadenilla,
Try open the pdf file via "inline" mode instead of "attachment".
eg:
 Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", string.Format("inline; filename={0}", file.Name));

Response.Buffer = True
Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "attachment; filename=file_long_name.pdf");
Response.ContentType = "application/ms-excel";

Response.ContentType = "application/ms-excel";

To

Response.ContentType = "application/octet-stream";

i used the following to get it to work
Response.ClearContent();
Response.ClearHeaders();
Response.AppendHeader("Content-Disposition", string.Format("attachment; filename={0}", file.Name));
Response.AppendHeader("Content-Length", file.Length.ToString());
Response.ContentType = "application/pdf";
