Major - Header problem

P: 3
Dear friends,
In the popup window i am using the header for downloading the files.
I call the popup window in one directory say for example:
/sample/download/popup.php
In the popup.php i call the function
window.open('../export/export.php');

In the export.php i am using the form action as export_type.php.
In the export_type.php i includes some file . In that one file contains the function for downloading.

If i am using like this my download program is not working what is the
problem here.
If i am using all the files in the same directory then my header is working.
Kindly anyone can address my problem.


With Regards

Hello sir,

I am using the headers for downloading.
I explain the problem in detailed.
************************************************** ***************
=> The file rohini/sample/popup/popup_window.php file call one popup window.
=> Inside this file file i call the window like this.
button5.onClick = "function () {
window.open( '../quality/src/qm_export_frame.php');
}\n";
************************************************** ****************
=> In the ../quality/src/qm_export_frame.php i am include the files
Inside the ../quality/src/qm_export_frame.php file
* I am using the form
<form name=test method=post action="qm_type_export.php">
And also i am having one hidden box here.
* Whenever the form is submitted it calls the file
qm_type_export.php
qm_type_export.php includes some more files
* qm_type_export.php file contains
include("exporting_functions.php");
* So i get the value from the hidden box .
* Say if the hidden box value contains one then i call the function
known as call_export().
* The call_export() function is available in the file
exporting_functions.php.
* Inside the call_export() function i am calling the function
call_mime(type).
************************************************** ****************
function call_mime($title)
{
header('Content-Type: text/css');
header("Content-length: ".filesize($title));
header('Content-disposition: attachment; filename="abcde.csv"');
readfile($title);
}
************************************************** ****************


So this is my infrastructure of the program.
My problem if i call the call_mime($title). It does not work.

But if i am calling the window and all the files related to the same
directory then it is working.

This is my problem.
