The following string works fine when issued out of IE6:

"FTP://localhost/word.doc", i.e. I get the doc with the option to 'open' or 'save'.

? Question: how can I achieve this dynamically with HTML/Script means?

Is there anything like 'CreateObject("FTP.application")'; (E.g., I can open a word document using 'CreateObject("word.application")').

I'm pretty sure there is a simple solution to this - I just don't get it!

Thanks for any hint

window.location.href = "ftp://localhost/oo.odt"
You were overcomplicating things :)

Hi Tway,

thanks a million .... I 'knew' there must be an easier way....!
... might be I have not enough experience (I am only 59)!

Thanks again
