    Hi all,
    I had a few reports using sql reporting services 2000 and render to PDF format using weblink.
    Example: http://servername/reportname&rs:Format=PDF
    By using asp.net application to call out this report using:
    response.write="<script>window.open('" & http://servername/reportname&rs:Format=PDF & "'</script>"
    as I need to open this report to another window.
    However, everytime there will be a File Download window pop up to prompt users to open file from its current location or save the file to disk.
    Users do not like the prompt window. Is there any way to remove the window and open the file directly?
    Thank you.

    Not I'm aware of, as I said this is more on winodws side of affect.
    May be you can look at c# or WMI scripts in this case to have such funcationality, a trip to Technet would help.
