Hello,
I need to open an excel sheet when the user clicks on a link.
When I run the code I get SAVE/ DOWNLOAD dialog box.
Is it possible to get around the SAVE/DOWNLOAD dialog and open the excel sheet directly.
In other words, is it possible to download the excel sheet to a temp directory and open it from there.
Please help,
Thanks in advance.
