    Default Down loading file to desktop from grid component

    If you go to Control Panel and select a new operation to export a file from a grid component without delimiters,
    you select table option and it will export a flat file to desktop. I am trying to button on a grid component to execute a
    file download action to create a file on PC Desktop, c:\usps\trnfil00.txt from table vmasintf1 and am mmissing something.
    It indicates filename can not be found. Is it looking for the file name I am entering on the server or the desktop?
    I kn ow it is on desktop. If it needs to be on server, how does one create a dos file in server table? And am I picking
    the correct file type. The Alpha file download video is not clear. Any suggestion?

    You say that it is on the desktop yet the directory is not the desktop but a folder on your c:\ drive
    The desktop usually resides in something like c:\users\username\desktop

    Put the file in c:\usps and it should work

    Always love it when it works in Live View, but not when you publish it it does not. Go to www.swksystems.com enter seastvmf in User ID and password in Password (this is a demo project, lookiing to make live as it is running current on desktop). Click on VMAS Interface Upload to get error message.
