Description Wendy Kajiyama 2004-09-29 03:12:10 UTC
The .xls files generate fine and when they're opened locally they're fine. But 
I generate the files to a website so that they can be downloaded but IE doesn't 
display the files. IE just hangs. I waited for as long as 5 minutes.

At first I used POI v. 1.5.1 and the problem occured half of the time. So I 
upgraded to 2.5.1 thinking that it might have been fixed but it got worse. 
Since I upgraded I can't seem to view any .xls files at all from the browser. I 
checked the MIME types in IIS and .xls is included by default for all websites.

Version of IE: 6.0 SP1
Client OS: Win 2K Prof, Win 2K Server w/ SP3, Win 2K Server w/ SP4
Server OS: Win 2K Server
