    Question link to xls file

    If I have a link to a xls file, how can I force the browser to pop up the "Save it or Run it " window rather than open the xls file automatically ?

    It depends on what you want the user to do with the file. If you just want the file to be downloaded then you could use Winzip to "zip" the file, that will always prompt the user to download it then.

    Hope this helps?
