Answer to Weblog Question for Sumith Rajagopalan

Sumith Rajagopalan I hope that you read the BSP question forum as well as the weblogs. You posted a question in the discussion forum on the following weblog:

/people/thomas.jung3/blog/2004/08/09/bsp-download-to-excel-in-unicode-format

For some reason I can no longer post comments to this or any other weblog right now. I assume there is problem on the SDN side. Therefore I thought I would post the answer here until the problem is resolved.

It appears to be a simple typo in your code. You had:

response->set_header_field(
name = 'content_disposition'
value = 'attachment;filename=webforms.xls' ).

The correct code is:

  response->set_header_field( 
      name = 'content-disposition' 
      value = 'attachment; 
      filename=webforms.xls' ).

Please note that is is a dash not an underscore in the content-disposition header field name.
