i seem to have the same problem as you did with internet explorer downloading (and displaying inline) a file named "excelservlet" while the firefox recognizes the file properly as "worksheet.xlsx". What disturbs me specifically is that the wrong file extension causes Excel to ask me if i am sure i want to open a file where the content doesn't match the extension before dispaying it. I so far tried the "response.reset();" part, but i don't understand what you mean by returning null, could you please elaborate on that?

He already has a form.

Perhaps this article will be helpful in understanding JSP.
