Unable to trasmit MemoryStream file to HttpResponse

I have the following code which is working well if I send a Crystal report to it using the ExportToStream() method.  Unfortunately if I run the same code using a MemoryStream object containing xml.  What happens is the XML is output but that is followed by the entire webpage.  The code below is followed by an example output.

        static public void SendFile(HttpResponse Response, Stream file, string FileName)
        {
            Response.ContentType = "application/octet-stream";
            Response.AppendHeader("content-disposition", "attachment; filename=" + FileName);
            file.CopyTo(Response.OutputStream);
            Response.OutputStream.Flush();            
        }

Open in new window
