Code for a file download
I need to post a file to the website for people to be able to download, however, I have no idea how to do this. I uploaded the file to one of the directories on our remote web server and now need to know how to code it so the Excel file downloads when you click on it.

Did you try a normal hyperlink to the file?

Yes, I did but it didn't work. It just tells me the page doesn't exsist.

I tried your suggestion with no luck. I still get the page that says page not found. I checked all the permissions and everything seems to be set correctly. Is it possible that the company that hosts our site is setup not to allow file downloads? I am totally at a loss at this point.

Make sure you have everything spelled right.. I'm not sure, but im willing to bet things are case sensative on your host...
Also, could you please give us a link to the page so we may see?

THANK YOU!!!! You were right it was a case sensitivity problem. However, if you would like to check out the page on which I was PREVIOUSLY having a problem go to:
Click the first choice of "Log in to Secure Client Area"
when prompted enter:
You will then go to the page with the link to the downloadable file. This username and password will be good for 3 days. Thanks again for your help!

BTW: Lookin' at your signature, I understand you are a network administrator? How is that? It's time for me to start looking into college, and network administration seems like somethign I like... What is your opinion on it? I have gotten alot of likes/dislikes about it.
