Downloading to Client from ASP
 
Hello,

I am developing an app that has a reporting function
which displays the non-PDF reports. One of the users
wishes to have the reports saved to his machine as PDFs.

The app can convert the reports, and save to the server
with no problem (uses a component for this). The problem
is, figuring out how to save the reports to the client.

The ideal approach would be to have the app save the
reports to his desktop, like some of those stupid casino
sites save their shortcut links.

However, I would settle for just just being able to force
the "download" dialog to display, instead of opening
Acrobat when the app attempts to send the report to the
client.

All suggestions/help would be appreciated.

Tony
