There's no way to have multiple files download from a single link.  You have two options:
  1. Return a page with a separate link to each file.
  2. Combine the files in a temporary zip file and create a link that points to this file.  There are several zip components available, which can be called directly from FoxWeb.

I want a facility within my Foxweb-based website whereby the user presses a button on a page to launch a program which extracts data from tables and creates a number of .xls spreadsheet files.  These files are then to be automatically downloaded into a user-defined folder on the user's pc.
 
a) Is this possible?
b) If so, can it be done without the 'File download' save/open dialog appearing before each download?
c) Is there any way of checking that the download folder exists first before downloading?
 
Any help would be appreciated.
