I am not sure,If I am posting this problem in the right place. I have a problem while uploading a file when it is opened. Open a word document and try to upload the same document , It does not show any exceptions but the file is not being uploaded in the Internet explorer. I am using struts <html:file> tag for the file upload button in my jsp . In my initial anlaysis, observed that the same file upload is working fine in Firefox even tough the file is opened. Is there any file properties I need to set, to make it work on IE too . Right now I am testing for MS word documents. or is it an existing bug with the Internet explorer...I am unable to find any clue on this.
