    Default DateFormat and cfcontent problem

    I wonder why the following will not output to msword:

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ----------
    <cfcontent type="application/msword" />
    <html><head><title>hi</title></head>
    <body>
    <cfoutput>#DateFormat(Now(),"long")#</cfoutput>
    </body>
    </html>

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    It seems that DateFormat and cfcontent cannot be with each other for some
    reason....
    Wonder how i can solve this problem

    What does the output look like? Try a different format.

    I don't think you can generate a word doent just by using a cfcontent. You
    need to use a word generator, a seperate application, and then you can use the
    cfcontent tag and display the MS Word content genereated by this application.
    You can dynamically generate excel spread sheets this way but not word
    doents.
    You can IText to create rtf doents on the fly.

    Thank you guys

    The output simply looks like today's date in my IE with the following format:
    May 9,2005
    where it is suppost to display that in MSWord
    if i do this:

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ----
    <cfcontent type="application/msword" />
    <html><head><title>hi</title></head>
    <body>
    coldFusion, hahahaha
    </body>
    </html>

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ----

    and run the page, I will see a window asking me if i want to save a ".doc"
    file or open the ".doc" file, if i open, the text "coldFusion, hahahaha" will
    display in MSWord like magic.....

    That is cool! I am sorry for wrong info. I tried to generate a word doent from a cfm page, but was unsuccessful doing that. It was a couple of years ago.
    May be I was doing something wrong.
