Hello everybody!

I am running into a problem. I export my gridview into ms-word. Everything is working fine in firefox. But in IE8, the name of the word file is the name of my web page. Let say download.aspx.

I am using the code like:

HttpContext.Current.Response.ContentType = "application/msword";


//Application specific code here

 StringWriter stringWrite = new StringWriter();HtmlTextWriter htmlWrite = new HtmlTextWriter(stringWrite);HttpContext.Current.Response.Write(strHTMLContent.ToString());HttpContext.Current.Response.End();HttpContext.Current.Response.Flush();

Waiting for your reply!

.Current.Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "inline;filename=" + strFileName.Replace(" ", "_"));

I see you are setting the content disposition to inline. Perhaps try setting it to attachment?
Response.AddHeader( "content-disposition", "attachment; filename=MyDoc.doc");
I got that information from this webpage.
