Forced Download   
 
Sometimes you want a user to download a binary file instead of opening it inside the browser window.
There are several different ways to accomplish this.

Generically:
<%
    FileName = "Document.Doc"
    Response.ContentType = "application/octet-stream"
    Response.AddHeader "content-disposition", "attachment; filename =" & filename
    Set Stream = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Stream")
        Stream.Open
        Stream.LoadFromFile Server.MapPath(Filename)
            Conents = Stream.ReadText
            Response.BinaryWrite Contents
        Stream.Close
    Set Stream = Nothing
%>

If you know the file type that you would like the user to download, try:
<%
Filename = "document.doc"
Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.ms-word"
Response.AddHeader "content-disposition", "attachment; filename=" & filename
%>
