My first post and new to web development. Inherited supporting a website that uses IIS and FoxISAPI. I'm trying to allow users to download an excel file with the following code:

Code: [ Select ]
<a href="myexcelfile.xlsx" target="_blank">Download (xlsx)</a>

On the same page, I have the same link to PDFs that are working. Getting inconsistent results across Mozilla8, IE8 and IE9. IE gives message "myexcelfile.xlsx couldn't be downloaded". Mozilla downloads the file but is not recognize by Excel and looks corrupt.

Any help/guidance would be greatly appreciated by this newbie. Thanks.
