    Nothing is happening when i click on the anchor links 😦
    Please assist me …Does a pop up window appears upon clicking on the anchor links ?

    • tahertinwala says:

      Yes a pop up does comes. May be problem with your browser setting please check it….

      • hari says:

        Dude Just by setting a content type header can we make a JSP page to emit a Word or Excel document. That’s not the case right?- we need to use a library like Apache POI which can create both those file types.

        Can you just tell me in which browser you tried this???and configuration changes in IE as well..
