Save Office documents

Dear All,

I need to download a mass amount of data from a system, including Office documents of various types.

Under normal circumstances, I would click on the file and IE would ask me if I want to Open, Save, or Cancel. Here is a sample URL:

http://xxx.xxx.com/servlet/DownloadDocument?id=388502

The problem is that, as you can see, I do not click directly on the file. I click on a JSP link and this JSP link sends me the file.

So, is there a way to force Offline Explorer to save the file without asking me? This must be very simple and obvious, but I could not find the option. The purchase of the offline browsing tool depends on this capability.

Regards,

Fabio Ottolini

Yes, Offline Explorer will not ask you a question - it will simply download all files to the disk. Please try the download. If you will have any problems, feel free to ask me.

Oleg,

It just downloads an error page... No documents. What can I do to troubleshoot this issue?

I don''t know if this affects the program, but the file is sent back to me after the request on a new browser window.

And even though I am inside Offline Explorer, the new windows that comes out after the click is from IE... So, maybe the error is being generated because IE does not have the cookies/session info needed to handle the request? How to solve that?

Perhaps you simply need to browse to the site online in the Internal browser of Offline Explorer Pro. If it requires password, logon there. And after that start downloading the site. Offline Explorer Pro will use cookies from the internal browser.
