    Hi,

    I am a complete newbie when it comes to javascript and I need some help. Our
    web site creates a text file which I would like the system to ask the user
    what to do with, either open, save or cancel. Currently we use the code
    below but that only puts it in the browser window and for the text files
    that is fine but some of the files are csv and that won't work. If I can't
    it to ask me what to do with it, can I force it to open in a new window?

    Any and all help, ideas greatly appreciated.

    John

    A potential solution is mentioned in the group FAQ. It might also be a
    good thing for you to read as someone new to the language.
