    Download object wont download but web view works

    Hi

    I have a small problem.

    im trying to use the Download object to retreive - "https://spreadsheets.google.com/feeds/download/spreadsheets/Export?key=1A422FzAv52ZHbAWRZHRPCQ6q4sQsJf5lc_jtNk PHdw4&exportFormat=csv"

    but nothing happens..

    when i use the Web View Object instead to download from the same URL it works ok, can anyone help?

    the destination is appppath$+"test.csv" in the download object and in in Web View Object it separates the path and the file name but they're the same, i also tried this with a different file on the web (one from drop box) and it works.

    Thanks for your help in advance

    Zem

    This may have to do with the fact that the csv content (or any other format published as google docs)
    is *probably* dynamically generated on connection to the page,
    it is not a stationary file on the google server,
    but a content that get its output on request by the browser (*probably* simulated by the web view)

    I guess download object can only access static-already existing-remote-files

    This is only a guess, though,
    since it gives no output error log it's hard to tell for sure

    Thanks Schrodinger, yea i had a feeling this was the case, i've tried several links from google as i can specify if its a document or just a download and then if it is a document what to export it as but using just the download url (which isn't the one above) it still fails.

    Hopefully there is a solution, i'm not apposed to using the Web View Object just it seem (by my nature) lazy.

    If this is the case,
    and you much probably need the link to google doc because of its "shared/updatable" nature,
    (a file subject to change often, not fixed content you can -obviously- simply upload somewhere)
    the only "solution" I can think of would be parsing that link and saving output to another remote drive,
    through scheduled tasks on an application server or through an aptly created little crawler,
    i.e. like a fusion app with webview that on scheduled times opens the remote content and uploads it to another webspace, making it available to the download object...

    But I hope a better solution exists
