> Hey,
> I was wondering if there is any way to place a pulldown menu next to a
> download link and use the menu to change where on the client's machine the
> file linked to is downloaded. I work with a large number of users who must
> be able to download a file to the appropriate folder for their version of
> a piece of software. Each version of the software uses a different
> directory to store these types of files in and they will not work unless
> they are located in the proper place. 
> 
> So to sum up I want to use some web language, preferably javascript and
> HTML to allow the user to pre-select where a files will be downloaded to
> to prevent them from being queried for a download location. Perhaps using
> an auto download feature instead of a coded link?
> 
> To reply to me I must recieve email through my supervisor. Please email
> your reply to 'Christopher.jay@po.state.ct.us' and put my name in the
> subject line, Ryan Turner.
