NS7 renames filename (forced download)

    I coded a simple asp-script to force a file-download. (ex. dummy.doc)
    In IE6, NS4.7 and Opera 7 everything works fine and the file can be easily
    downloaded...

    But NS7 renames the filename in the dialogue-box to dummy.doc.asp

    How can I prevent that?

    thx

    I'm not aware of any tricks specifically for NS7, but you might try
    different variations of addheader (you may have to sent different header
    values conditionally to NS7).
