    htlm page to.... doc or txt file


    Can anyone help me - is the following idea do-able?

    I have been asked to insert a button onto our company website that allows
    the user to click a button and the current record from an asp page will be
    saved into a usable text file or word document.

    All they are after is the text - no html codes. Imagine the screen u are
    view inserted into such a file.

    Is that possible? does anyone have any suggestions or places i can look for
    utilities do do such a task?

    Your comments will be much appreciated - even if I have to go back to them
    and say its impossible because of reasons a,b,c...

    Many thanks in advance

    Try adding these to the top of the ASP page that displays the current
    record on-screen:
    <%
    Response.ContentType ="Application/vnd.ms-word"
    Response.AddHeader "Content-Disposition","inline;filename=myWord.doc"
    %>
    The page will open in Word, pretty much as if you opened the same page
    in the browser (you may have to play with the formatting a bit).

    Sorry, the only ones I know about are the Microsoft ones listed below.
    Apparently they'll be listed somewhere in the HTML specs, so try w3c.org
    for more help.

    Response.ContentType ="Application/vnd.ms-word"
    Response.ContentType ="Application/vnd.ms-excel"
    Response.ContentType ="Application/vnd.ms-powerpoint"

    1. {\rtf1\ansi\ansicpg1252\uc1\deff0\stshfdbch0\stshfloch0\stshfhich0 stshfbi0\deflang1033\deflangfe1033

    2. \par }}

    Read line 1 with ReadLine or ReadAll method and then call your record and
    then ReadLine or ReadAll # 2.

    Above line is RTF for word document. That is all you need to generate a word
    document.

    Later!!
