I am using version 11.11.23 of CDA in biserver-ee-3.10.0-GA.

I am using the Web API to call a query and output an Excel file. This works fine in Firefox but i am getting issues in Internet Explorer (I am using IE 8).

When I try it in Internet Explorer I get an error message. The error message states: "Internet Explorer cannot download doQuery from TestServer. Internet Explorer was not able to open this Internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later."

The weird thing is if I change the output type to xml it will load correctly. If I change the output type back to xls it then loads correctly. If I move to a new IE window then I am back to the error again.

It works OK all the time in Firefox and all of the other outputs work all the time in IE. The issue only occurs in IE when I initially try to use xls is an output type.

Here is the URL for the query:


Is this an issue with IE or something I may have done wrong?
