downloaded file shows action cancelled

I have an asp page that outputs a word document. Wnen the user attempts to
open this page from a hyberlink in an email document the word document opens
fine but if they save then an action cancelled message appears in a browser
window. If you cut and paste this same link into IE and attempt to saves
there is no browser window opened.

If the user attempts to open instead of save the document it opens in a word
out side the browser. I am told this used to open up in word insdie the
browser.If you cut and paste the link into explorer and acess it from there
the word document is displayed in word inside the browser.

If I omit the content disposition header the word document opens inside a
browser no matter how it is opened however the save problem remains.

I do not want the browser window to remain open. Or if it must then I dont
want the ACTION Cacelled message. How can I control that?

Thanks for your help.

In a browser window or an instance of Word?
but if they save then an action cancelled message appears in a browser

What happens if you scroll through the document to the end first then
attempt to save?

Hi all, we have a simple web application using asp.net web forms and everything was running fine until we introduced an ISA Server in between the clients and the Web Server. Now almost like every 5 mins users get an "Action Cancelled" IE error message and it is proving to be very frustrating. Any ideas? All clients are Windows XP SP2. TIA!
