Default Problem with an Excel file

I’m creating an Excel file (.xls) and showing it into a web page, I’m using this code:

Response.Buffer= true;
Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.ms-excel";
Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "inline;filename=Clientes.xls");
Response.Charset = "";
this.EnableViewState = false;
System.IO.StringWriter oStringWriter = new System.IO.StringWriter();
System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter oHtmlTextWriter = new System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter(oStringWriter);

When code finish it execution, a window is displayed, asking user if he want open or save the file, if he choose save, file is saved as Clientes.xls in folder user choose. But when user decide open file it is opened into a web form containing rows and columns as an excel file, if user modify some data and close web form, system tell user that this document have changed and ask if he wants to save it, if answer is yes, and an automated window is displayed containing file name (in blank) and type of save containing (web page), and user need to place file name and change type of save from web page to Microsoft Excel Book.
Does somebody know how to achieve this automated window be filled in file name with Clientes.xls and type of save be filled with Microsoft Excel Book?
I’ll appreciate your help.

We have this problem as well, if anyone knows how to fix it please post.

For now I know you must not use "open dialogue, you have to close the dialogue box, then go open the fie on the hard drive. then resave as excel book and remove the quotes, then it's truly an excel booklet, otherwise you get stuck with it as a web page.
