Hi,

I have a JSP that throws a report in the form of an excel download.
So, whenever this JSP executes it...it throws a pop-up giving the user to select either "SAVE INTO DISK" or "OPEN FROM CURRENT LOCATION".
I find that whenever user selects the OPEN FROM CURRENT LOCATION....it throws it into the C:\WINNT\TEMPORARY INTERNET FILES folder in the machine.
My question is : Is there a way we can change this setting to download to some other folder in the machine..like say C:\outputs.
Can this change be done in the JSP or is there any other alternative ?

Thanks.

Guess not. This is more of an OS thing. Try changing your TEMP environment variable on the OS, may be that could help.
