downloadable text file

Hi,

If I click on the URL of a text file, it opens on the IE. How can I make it
to prompt being downloaded instead of being opened on the IE? Thanks for any
idea.

Oh, sorry. I mess up. The downloaded file is not what I want but the error
message:

ADODB.Stream error '800a0bba'
File could not be opened.
/save_as.asp

What else should I do?
