Classic ASP - Need help with download text file
This is my second attempt at answering this question. The previous attempt which was closed by Doug G for an unknown reason. All I am trying to do is find out how to accomplish this. I received one answer that had a link to a site in another language.
I am creating a text file, that once created is to be downloaded. I have the file being created and saved on the server, the problem I am having is getting the download/open dialog to work. The following is my current code and while this works to a point, the file the user receives is a text file containing html code along with the contents of the actual file.
Any and all help is appreciated.
Const adTypeBinary = 1
strFileName = "test.txt"
strFilePath = "c:\extracts\" + strFileName
Set objStream = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Stream")
objStream.Type = adTypeBinary
Response.AddHeader "Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" & strFileName
Response.Charset = "UTF-8"
Response.ContentType = "image/jpeg"

What have you done to attempt to debug this code? I don't know the ado strream object, sorry.
I closed the other post because of the useless adfly references
