What error in what browsr on what platform.
Is the cfm returning application/octet-stream as it is supposed to for download or something else? Please provide more detail.

hi, i solved it using the <a href tag inside the modal window and setting its target to the name of the iframe inside the modal window. the height/width of modal window was set to 0 px to as to make it invisible.. and it worked

Regards

Thanks mplungjan!
