When i use the code
Code: [ Select ]
on (release) {
    getURL( "forms/CaseReviewISPupdate.doc","_self")
}
  1. on (release) {
  2.     getURL( "forms/CaseReviewISPupdate.doc","_self")
  3. }


it opens up a download dialog box that asks if i want to open or save the file. if i hit open it opens the file in the same window as my flash site. Then if you hit back it starts the whole site over again from the beginning. if i hit save it all works fine.

if i use the code
Code: [ Select ]
on (release) {
    getURL( "forms/CaseReviewISPupdate.doc","_blank")
}
  1. on (release) {
  2.     getURL( "forms/CaseReviewISPupdate.doc","_blank")
  3. }


It opens a separate window that says "action canceled". If i hit refresh the download box opens. If i hit open it opens in the separate window.

My question is why does IE display a "action canceled page" but if i hit refresh it works fine?

you can see an example at :

Click the download.doc button

it comes up with a separate page that says "action canceled". I only have this issue with IE.
If i hit refresh it works fine

I am using Internet Explorer w/ Microsoft word installed. I've tried it on multiple computers and have gotten the same result, a separate box that pops up and say "action cancelled but if i hit refresh it opens the download dialog box. I'm not sure, i think it is an IE issue, I'm just not sure how to fix it :(
