forcing Excel to open file

I have the following code at the top of my page. Is there a way to force
Excel to open the spreadsheet? Presently, it opens within the browser
window. I know it can be saved etc., but I would rather have Excel receive
the data.

<% Response.conten ttype = "applicatio n/vnd.ms-excel" %>
<% Response.AddHea der "Content-Disposition", "filename=" &
Request.Form("F ileName") & ".xls" %>

thanks

This is a client side option. (Open in new window for the .xls file type),
but you can use this:
