    This is a client-side option that you cannot control from ASP, but you can
    use this trick.

    Thanks for pointing out this is a client option. How may I setup this
    option on client PC manually? Thanks!

    For the xls file type in tools, options, file types from explorer.exe:

    browse in same window = false
    confirm open after download = true

    Based on the following code, I think that I use CSV format.
    filesys.createTextFile(application("ApplicationPat h") &
    "repository\repository_" & filenameval & ".csv",true)

    So, I set up in Tools/Folder Options/File Types/CSV and see the
    following are true. Why I
    am still not getting a dialog window to confirm open after download???
    browse in same window = false
    confirm open after download = true

    Huh. I get the same thing. I also notice that the options I set for csvs
    don't stick. There is this article, but it's the opposite effect.

    work-around you could stream the file back using this.
