opening EXCEL and MS WORD doc requires login to WAS

Hi all, just have a question on when I open an EXCEL or MS Word document in a new window via below html statement, a logon on screen pops up and asking me to logon to the SAP Web Application Server, however, when I cancel, it will open the EXCEL/WORD, document, my question is, how can I remove/bypass the popup dialog screen asking me to logon to SAP WAS. Is this a network security issue?

<td><a href="/docs/<%= file_name%>" target="_blank">

<%= att_name%></a></td>

Note: "file_name" is the unix filename

"att_name" is the description of the filename

Thanks in advance for your help.

    1. Is this from a BSP page?

    2. <td><a href="<b>/docs/</b><%= file_name%>" target="_blank"> - can u give us the full path to analyze?

    Is "/docs/" is a node in SICF?

    Regards

    Hi thanks for the reply, yes, /docs is a node in SICF, to make it clear it can be replace by:

    <td><a href="/docs/document.xls" target="_blank">

    <Excel document></a></td>

    thanks.

    Thanks for the reply. I think the relative path is correct because when I open other type of documents such as PDF, TXT, etc, they all work. Only EXCEL and WORD did not work.

    Please advise.

    thanks.
