putting dowloadable word doc on page
putting dowloadable word doc on page

Help! I am tryimg to put a word document on a page for people to download, I have linked to it under the normal <a href called printer friendy version, the only trouble I have is when people link to it before they can view it comes up asking for a user name and password, if I click cancel on this box then it views fine. Any ideas why this happens.

What software is asking for a password -- is it a browser request or is it Word?

It would appear to be word asking for the request,

Hi meanweaver, you'd have to change the document settings in Word, ie. Click to Save the document, then select Tools > Save options from the window that appears. Delete the passwords in their respective fields, and save the document again.

I'm still having trouble with this, if I open up the word document from source it opens fine, so i dont understand why it does this when linked opened by a link to it.?

Hi meanweaver, that document wouldn't happen to be in a password-protected directory of the site, would it?
