Link to a file -- file download dialog box prompts user twice

I've searched and searched for the answer to this question, but all I can find is javascript answers and I'm really not using javascript in my code.

I have a link to a powerpoint presentation and when it's selected, a dialog box comes up and asks if the user wants to open the file, save it, or cancel.

If open is selected, the presentation opens just fine. However, once you scroll to the next slide, the dialog box appears again asking if you want to open the file, save it, or cancel.

Does anyone know if this is because my file is too large, I've written something incorrectly in my code, or what the problem may be?

I appreciate any help I can get...I'm fairly new to html, so please be thorough in your explanation if you have one.

Thanks...

I don't think your problem is with HTML, but post your code any ways.

I'm not sure if I mentioned it or not, but this site is being used at my job and isn't on a web server.

It's basically just a document that opens in a browser. We're using it for training purposes, so it's important that it function properly to prevent the user from questioning what's going on.

If anyone can help me out I would be extremely grateful...

Maybe if you'd post in the relevant forum, you'd get an answer.

Your page is invalid. That doesn't have anything to do with your presentation though, and I have no idea what could be causing it. Try asking in the Misc Question forum

Thanks,

Are you serious? Relevant forum? And what forum would that be? I was only using HTML/CSS and if I'm not mistaken this is the HTML/CSS forum.
