      It is actually quite easy to do. Simply create a String output parameter in your BLS transaction, and call the transaction via a URL using the Runner servlet. Be sure to put a "virtual file name" on the end of your URL of the form &Dummy.mtw or whatever. If Minitab is installed on the client PC, it will automatically open the results from that URL. It also wouldn't hurt to add &Content-Type=application/minitab to the URL.

      The power of BLS that a lot of people don't realize is that it can stream back virtually any format, without the need to save it to disk.

    Senthil,

    If you are trying to save to the file to another system rather than the local xMII system refer to this thread:
