Stop excel files opening in IE

  cherria 17:47 17 Nov 2004

If I click a link to an excel file in IE, then it opens with excel embedded in IE. I don't want this to happen. When I click a link to an excel file, I want it to open in Excel, is there a setting I need to turn on or off to stop this happening.

I don't think so. Why not right click the link and Save Target As.

This particular file is coming from a java application that generates a .csv file which then auto loads in embedded excel inside IE

I want it to open straight into native excel so the full features of excel are available, I'll keep searching Google unless anybody here has solved this before.
