Default writing to an xml file on the client side

ok .. I need help (once more)
I create a report in the following script fed by an Access Database.
My goal is to give the client the option to save this report as an xml file locally so it can update the clients Database (via import)
how do i write from the server to the clients harddrive? Is there a way to write directly to the clients harddrive? or do i create a file for download on the server?

Toran



<%option explicit%>
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

<html>
<head>
    <title>Client Report</title>

    <%
    dim objCommand, objRS
        Set objCommand = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
        objCommand.ActiveConnection = strConn
        objCommand.CommandText = "Select FirstName, Name, City, Sales.SalesID, SalesDate, SalesTime, Client.ClientID "
        objCommand.CommandText = objCommand.CommandText + "FROM Client, Sales, SalesLine "
        objCommand.CommandText = objCommand.CommandText + "WHERE Client.ClientID= Sales.ClientID AND Sales.SalesID= SalesLine.SalesID "
        'executing and resetting to Nothing
        objCommand.CommandType = adCmdText
        Set objRS = objCommand.Execute
        Set objCommand = Nothing
    %>
</head>

<body>
Sales Reports:
<%

response.write "<table border ='1'>"
response.write "<tr><th colspan='4'>Clients</th></tr>"
if not (objRS.eof) then

    objRS.moveFirst
    while not objRS.eof

    response.write "<tr><td>"&objRS("ClientID")&"</td><td>"&objRS("FirstName")&"</td><td>"&objRS("Name")&"</td><td>"&objRS("City")&"</td>"
    response.write "<td>"&objRS("SalesID")&"</td><td>"&objRS("SalesDate")&"</td><td>"&objRS("SalesTime")

    objRS.movenext
    wend

else

response.write "NOTHING HERE"
End if
response.write "</table>"
%>
</body>
</html>

You can only wite to the hard drive if the client has low security settings and the code executes client side. An alternative is to produce the file server side and give a link to the file with instructions to right click on the link and choose "save target as..." for IE or whatever the text is for other browsers. Otherwise the xml will simply dispaly in the browser.
