Powerpoint

Discussion in 'ASP General' started by Irishmaninusa, Jul 25, 2003.

  1. I have two links on a page.

    One goes to an excel spreadsheet and the other goes to a powerpoint.

    If you click on the excel it prompts you to down load it or open it.

    IF you click on the powerpoint.....it opens it in the browser.....why does
    that happen?

    Because the user either does not have Excel installed on his computer or
    does not have "browse in same window" enabled and has "confirm open after
    download" enabled for the xls extension in his file association properties,
    possibly. Either that, or you're returning the xls file as an unknown file
    type, but if you're just linking right to an xls file on the server, that
    shouldn't be the case.

    Whether xls opens in the browser or downloads for opening in Excel is a
    client-side settings.

  3. The behaviour of the excel file is the desired behaviour for the powerpoint
    presentation
