How one can solve your issue without looking inside the code. Do debugging, you will definitely find it - Shakti Singh 2012-04-04 05:20
Thanks Shakti i will put the code i use on header - vnpnlz 2012-04-04 05:26


I think the problem lies in "open a new tab". What you probably have is this new tab opening a new session, efectivelly killing the old one.

A solution can be to open new tab passing the SESSID as a parameter in the url of the new tab. So PHP detect correctly the session and don't create a new one.

thanks Tei.. but how can i do that? how can i pass session to a new tab - vnpnlz 2012-04-10 07:05
You can have something like this, this will add the session name=session id value to the url that opens your get your export script. So wen the export script start, PHP finds the session and don't create a new one.
