We are trying to resolve an issue related to creation and display of MS Excel reports. Creation of appropriate report is done in JSP, and �content type� is set to Excel. This JSP fails to create a report only for the first time. For the first time it pops up an error� �Microsoft Excel cannot access the file '<ServerName>/<FileName>.jsp'.� (Error pops up for MS Excel 2000 and 2002 with MS Internet Explorer 6.0) Here is a sample code that demonstrates this issue: <% // MS Word Works well everytime //response.setContentType("application/msword");
// MS Excel // Dose not work first time //response.setContentType("application/x-msexcel"); // Dose not work first time response.setContentType("application/vnd.ms-excel"); %> <html> <body> Test Successful! </body> </html> Please let me know if you have encountered such an issue and have any suggestions. Thanks, Sandeep.
