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.

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

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