Export to Excel

I have an ASP page that calls ASP routines that I created that execute
a database query and return the results to a recordset. I then iterate
through the recordset and display the data in a table. Before I iterate
through the recordset I instruct the browser that the content type is
Excel using the following line:

(Response.Conte ntType = "applicatio n/vnd.ms-excel")

This works fine with Excel 2003 but with older versions (I tested Excel
97) the HTML included within the include files (on Page One) is
displayed in an Excel worksheet.

Page One - Begins with Include files (which contain my subroutines and
databse connection information). Then I have a Select statement to
determine which export users want. When I hit the case I need I then
call a Sub routine that exports the data to Excel.

Page Two - this page contains all of my custom functions and

Page One Example Code:
<!-- #INCLUDE FILE="../../../includes/common_settings .asp" -->
<!-- #INCLUDE FILE="../includes/composite_setti ngs.asp" -->
<!-- #INCLUDE FILE="../includes/composite_funct ions.asp" -->

sSymbol = Request("Symbol ")
sExportType = Request("Export Type")

'Determine Selected Export Type
Select Case lcase(sExportTy pe)
' '
Case "quarter"
' '
'Execute the Display Quarter Procedure
call DisplayQuarterE xport(sSymbol)
' '
Case "annual"
' '
'Execute the Display Annual Procedure
call DisplayAnnualEx port(sSymbol)
' '
Case "raw"
' '
'Execute the Display Annual Procedure
call DisplayRawExpor t(sSymbol)
' '
End Select

Page Two Procedure:
Sub DisplayQuarterE xport(pSymbol)
'Execute Quarter Function
set pRSQuarter = QuarterExportQu ery(pSymbol)
' '
'Tell the Browser to redirect the output to Excel
Response.Conten tType = "applicatio n/vnd.ms-excel"
' '
'Check is Recordset contains data
If pRSQuarter.Reco rdCount > 0 then
' '
'Move to the first record in the recordset
pRSQuarter.Move First
' '
'Display the title bar
Response.Write "<table border=1>"
Response.Write "<tr>"
' '
'Iterate through the fields collection
for each field in pRSQuarter.Fiel ds
Response.Write "<td>"
Response.Write "<b>" & replace(field.n ame,"_"," ") & "</b>"
Response.Write "</td>"
' '
Response.Write "</tr>"
' '
'Move to the first record in the recordset
pRSQuarter.Move First
' '
'Display data
Do until pRSQuarter.EOF
Response.Write "<tr>"
' '
'Composite Code
Response.Write "<td>"
Response.Write trim(pRSQuarter .Fields("Compos ite").Value)
Response.Write "</td>"
'Composite Date
Response.Write "<td>"
Response.Write pRSQuarter.Fiel ds("Composite_D ate").Value
Response.Write "</td>"
'Gross Return
Response.Write "<td>"
Response.Write Round(pRSQuarte r.Fields("Gross ").Value,2) & "%"
Response.Write "</td>"
'Gross UV
Response.Write "<td>"
Response.Write Round(pRSQuarte r.Fields("Gross _UV").Value,2)
Response.Write "</td>"
'Net Return
Response.Write "<td>"
Response.Write Round(pRSQuarte r.Fields("Net") .Value,2) & "%"
Response.Write "</td>"
'Net UV
Response.Write "<td>"
Response.Write Round(pRSQuarte r.Fields("Net_U V").Value,2)
Response.Write "</td>"
'Total Equity

Response.Write pRSQuarter.Fiel ds("Total_Equit y").Value
Response.Write "</td>"
'Total Fixed
Response.Write "<td>"
Response.Write pRSQuarter.Fiel ds("Total_Fixed ").Value
Response.Write "</td>"
Response.Write "<td>"
Response.Write pRSQuarter.Fiel ds("Cash").Valu e
Response.Write "</td>"
' '
Response.Write "</tr>"
pRSQuarter.Move Next
' '
'Close Quarter Export Recordset
CloseRS(pRSQuar ter)
' '
'Close Database Connection
CloseDBConnecti on()
' '
Response.Write "</table>"
' '
'Display Error Message is no results were found
Response.Write "Your Query returned (0) results."
' '
End If
' '
End Sub

Again this works great if I have Excel 2003 but for older versions of
Excel it displays the HTML that is contained within the include files
on page one.

Here is my assumption but I have no clue why Excel 2003 works. I am
assuming that the include file content is written to the screen (behind
the scenes) and when I instruct the browser that the content is Excel,
the include file data is included in the "content" and is displayed in

Please help, I am racking my head against the wall with this one.

I figured out a solution.

Before I set the content type (Response.Conte ntType) I clear the buffer
by executing the following line.


This cleared the existing content from the buffer.
