The screen is as follows.


File Download

Do You want to save this file?

Name: tx.ssd

Description: Unknown

From: <url of portal>

Below it wll have 2 buttons for save and cancle.


I think its not deciding the with what program it should open that file.

i.e. it should open the file with SAP.

Pl. provide the appropriate solution for the same.

    This shows it is some .ssd file. Check for the file extension from google and install appropraite software for opening this file.

    Only when the client machine doesn't have the required software, you may get this popup.

    Hope that helps.
