The client browser may be equipped to open the application, such as a 
workbook.
It is all dependant on the mime type you have associated. A trick here 
could be to associate data with a specific mime type:
<%
'Set the mime type of the data.
response.contenttype = "application/excel"
%>
That will ensure that the data, if no file extention is clearly 
specified, is sent to MS Excel. You can do the same for word, Access, 
PPt, etc.
I have a pretty comlete RFC MIME list at :
