Above each HTML table, I want to have a link that the user can click and download the data that is displayed on screen in .csv or tab delimited format, so that they can pull it into Excel. I found out how to display the .csv on screen with a <pre> element, but downloading it has been altogether another issue. ---------- Randal Rust Covansys Corp.
