RE: IE8 invoke spreadsheet when download .csv file?
I am also having the same problem when attempting to open a csv file on our
internet banking provider. With IE7, clicking "open" always invoked Excel to
open the file, however, with IE8 the csv file opens within the browser. It
appears to operate ok similar to excel but I am then unable to save any
changes as an excel file. Is there a way to do this?
The alternative is to get the file to open in Excel again (as is the case
