Default Opening the formated output in browser


I am working on ASP.NET.As per my client requirment i need to generate some .csv reports.Right now i am storing entire formated report into stringbuilder then writing this stringbuilder into.csv file and storing the .csv in serverside.Finally opening the stored .csv using javascript.Is there any way opening the report directly from excel without storing in server?

My reports format is complex i can get the data from single table or single data source.So i cant use Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.ms-excel" ect.

My code is like below

Assume Entire my report format in resstr variable.

    Dim resstr As New System.Text.StringBuilder(4096)
     Dim filename As String
        Dim filepath As String = Request.PhysicalApplicationPath()
        Dim objDir As New DirectoryInfo(filepath)
            If objDir.Exists Then
            End If
            filename = filepath + & "test.csv"

            Dim objStreamWriter As StreamWriter
            objStreamWriter = File.AppendText(filename)

            Response.Write("<script language='javascript'> window.open ('http://" + svrname + "/" + webdir + "/test.csv','','') <" & "/" & "script>")
