    Download file created from BLOB (as opposed to opening in browser)

      Hello, everyone.

       

      This project is really pushing me to become acquainted with a lot of functions I've never worked with, before.

       

      The question, this time:

      If I have a database table that houses files (and these can be PDF, TXT, DOC, XLS, or PPT) and would like to allow a user to download and save a particular file (as opposed to opening the file in the browser), how would I go about doing that?

       

      If the file existed on the server, that'd be simple enough.  But if it's being created on-the-fly via BLOB data??

       

      V/r,

       

      ^_^
