Display query result and export to excel using classic asp

I want to give the option to export results from a query to excel after displaying the query results.

I know how to do it one separately, and I am assuming that I would have to either put the results of the query in a query string or a session and pass it to the export.asp page.

The easiest way is to add the attached code to the page that you want to output to excel.  So passing you query to the export page which you would design in an excel like simple format.  With the attached code the page result will open in excel.
<%
'Set content type to Excel so page will open in Excel
	Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.ms-excel"
%>

Open in new window

I found my answer here. I already knew how to make it go straight to Excel, but I wanted the results listed first and then they could decide if they want to export to Excel.

This solution hides the sql string in a form and then submits it to a page that then has the code as above. ie set content type
