The ExportToExcel mejhod simply CREATES the Excel file, it does not Save the file to disk.  That is an action which the user must take for themselves, because they then have the choice of where on disk to actually save the xls file.

Add a Content-Disposition header to the response.

Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=<file name.ext>");

This should trigger the SaveAs dialog with the supplied file name.
