Hi,
I would like to send data from a JSP page to a MS Word doc. That works fine for me, but what I want to make is that procedure without the 'Save as...' dialog opens! What I mean is that I want to send from JSP to MSWord and directly(without any input from the user) get the submitted text in a word-doc!
I use the <%@ page language="java" contentType="application/msword" %> for the moment! Is there any modification that can be made or some other tag to be used?
/Emil

Unfortunately, there isn't anything you can do. This is a configuration of the Clients Browser and is up to the end user to properly configure that. You can make the suggestion to your customers and give them Guidelines on setting up serveral browsers but, that's about it.
