How to install a bathroom exhaust fan/heater/light??

My downstairs master bathroom has alot of moisture build-up, mainly due to the fact it does not have an exhaust fan. I'd like to install an exhaust fan/light/heater comb. but don't really want to have to duct it to the outside wall. There is a bedroom directly above this bathroom, so going up into the attic and out the roof is not an option. Can I exhaust the fan into the space above the ceiling, or is it a necessity to exhaust it out the side wall? Thanks in advance!

Do you REALLY want to take all the moisture from your bathroom and deposit it onto the top of the ceiling and the floor of the bedroom upstairs? If you do that you'll have worse problems than just moisture. You will be building a Mold House. Please don't do that.

MAJAK: Those were my exact thoughts, however I have a friend who remodels homes and he said there is no probelm with exhausting into the space between the two floors. Thanks very much for your quick reply, any other thoughts on this from anyone else?

I think if you check code there you have to vent it out side.
Just vent it out in the belt board there and feed the pipe in from the hole there.
